Alaska quake knocks out some communication, does little damage

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 10:14
By Steve Quinn JUNEAU Alaska (Reuters) - An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.9 struck the coast of Alaska early on Friday, shaking people awake in the capital Juneau and cutting off some communications in the southeast part of the state, officials said. An underwater fiber cable linking the area with the rest of the state was damaged, knocking out service for an unknown number of Internet and telephone users, said a spokeswoman for Alaska Communications. The National Earthquake Information Center, which is part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), said it was the strongest of 12 quakes to hit the region during a five-hour period. "The larger the magnitude, the longer it can go on," said a geophysicist at the center, Paul Caruso.
