Whitehorse (127.2 km NE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): The house shook but I had to look outside to make sure it wasn't wind. Trees weren't shaking so I knew it was an earthquake. (via app)
Juneau (United States) (215 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Birds seemed to be silent, even though it was 4:30. Just started to hear them at 5:15 Alaska Time (via EMSC)

Haines (United States) (97 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Sustained for at least 20 seconds. Started with fairly intense shaking and rumbling and ended with rolling waves. Felt many aftershocks. The first started with shaking with subsequent aftershocks feeling more like rolling waves followed eventually by an even more intense but shorter full scale earthquake again. This shorter burst of shaking, 10-15 seconds, caused more rattling of items on shelves and doors/windows than the first. Second full quake made me consider going downstairs just a bit more than the first. Now 7:00 am and experiencing fairly sustained rolling aftershock while typing this. How's that for abservational science? :) (via EMSC)

Juneau (United States) (223 km SE from epicenter)(no details): It woke me up, and lasted longer than I have ever experienced before (via EMSC)
Juneau (United States) (223 km SE from epicenter)(no details): was similar to a drunken swaying when getting up to go outside. in a low spot geographically that is known to me to act like jelly or jell-o in quakes no matter how jerky elsewhere. only birds were reacting outside, no dogs. trees swaying hard, and windchimes shaking (with no breeze). (via EMSC)
(United States) (184 km S from epicenter)(no details): Long deep rumble (via EMSC)
