Abstract

On 30 November 2018, a magnitude (Mw) 7.1 intraslab earthquake occurred under the most densely populated area of Alaska, 12  km north of downtown Anchorage. It generated the strongest ground shaking in the greater Anchorage area since the 1964 Mw 9.2 Great Alaska earthquake. Although the 30 November 2018 earthquake did not cause deaths or serious injuries, its economical and psychological impacts on the local population were profound. It caused widespread power outages, structural and nonstructural damage to public and private buildings, and damage to roadways and railways, and resulted in closures of several schools and multiple businesses.
