5.1 quake 4 km E of Big Lake, Alaska, USA, 7 Nov 3.23 am (GMT -9)
A moderately shallow magnitude 5.1 earthquake was reported early morning near the town of Big Lake, Alaska.
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the quake hit on Saturday 7 November 2020 at 3.23 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 22 miles. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in Big Lake (pop. 3,400) located 3 miles from the epicenter, Knik (pop. 300) 7 miles away, Houston (pop. 2,200) 7 miles away, Knik-Fairview (pop. 14,900) 9 miles away, Meadow Lakes (pop. 7,600) 11 miles away, Point MacKenzie (pop. 500) 12 miles away, Eagle River (pop. 24,800) 18 miles away, and Anchorage (pop. 298,700) 21 miles away.

Wasilla, AK (23.8 km ENE of epicenter) [Map] / Moderate shaking (MMI V) / both vertical and horizontal swinging / 5-10 s : Everything in the bedroom was shaking. The cat freaked out, got low on the bed, and was staring up, at which point I looked up and saw the fixed light fixture moving back and forth, along with the ceiling, walls, and floor. The kitty, who usually hides under the bed during earthquakes, was too afraid to jump on the floor. A few minutes later, at 3:27am, a smaller quaking was felt, perhaps an aftershock. A little while later,I could feel a pressure difference. My ears popped; my sinuses and head | One user found this interesting.

Anchorage / Moderate shaking (MMI V) : I just arrived in town last night around 9pm, checked into my hotel, had dinner and went to sleep around midnight. I was very tired after traveling from the east coast. I was awaken in the middle of the night as I thought the hotel was being shaken and quickly realized it was an earthquake, although it’s the first one I’ve experience. I checked my clock and it was 3:24am then I went back to sleep. I looked it up first thing in the morning and confirmed it was indeed an earthquake. | One user found this interesting.

We live in Anchorage Alaska and were able to feel / Light shaking (MMI IV) / vertical swinging (up and down) / 2-5 s : This scared us simply because of the 7.2 we had 2 years ago the end of November.
