Massive earthquake sparks tsunami warning

ROADS cracked, trees swayed and people sought shelter under desks as a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Anchorage, Alaska.

The earthquake prompted a tsunami warning, urging people in coastal zones of southern Alaskato move to higher ground immediately, but it was cancelled a short time later. 

 

The US Geological Survey reported the earthquake centre was about 12 kilometres north of Alaska's largest city.
