We just had a small earthquake about 12 miles SW of Fairbanks. According to the Geophysical Institute, it was magnitude 3.49. Honestly, it felt a bit larger than that possibly because it was so close. It went on for about 15 seconds and you could hear the house creaking. According to their site, there have been a bunch of earthquakes today. Update - According to the local paper, the magnitude has been upped to 3.72. Saturday morning - Two more earthquakes early this morning. 3.18 magnitude at 6:16 am and 2.93 magnitude at 7:30 am. All with epicenter about 10 miles SW of town. Interesting the way I wake up maybe 20 seconds before the earthquakes hit.

  1. You seem to have some (super)natural instincts to wake up shortly before an earthquake. Hopefully nothing got damaged.
