>> I'm gonna give you a shot of the studio real quick.>> KTVA's news team in Anchorage were among those badly shaken by an earthquake Friday. Officials describing a magnitude 7 quake centered just 7.5 miles north of the city.>> All of these are TVs and computers. This is a camera.
>> The powerful quake struck shortly before 8:30 AM local time. It damaged nearby businesses and sent shock waves through homes. Reporter Yereth Rosen is in Anchorage.>> It's an extraordinary earthquake because it was so strong and just about ten miles from the biggest city. Unlike most of the earthquakes which happen in remote areas, this was the opposite of a remote area.
Besides being strong it was really, really long, so we knew that it had to be close when it shakes for a long time. So there's a lot of property damage. Apparently the biggest property damage is damage to roads. Those roads are gonna be closed for a long time.
The governor and mayor have declared or are declaring disasters and seeking federal aid.>> The quake sparked a tsunami warning for the Cook Inlet area and southern Kenai Peninsula, although the warning was cancelled soon afterwards. And while no injuries were immediately reported, city and state officials are still assessing the damage.
>> That's what we're looking at.
