    Whoa, 1400?....according to my rough calculations that's about one aftershock every 3-4 minutes. Getting much sleep?

    No, you may not.

    Aftershocks have ranged from a high of M5.7 shortly after the primary event down to M0.diddlysquat, with the vast majority being closer to the latter. We don't feel most of them or barely do. I just ran a search of the USGS earthquake database that returned 1748 quakes in the immediate area since (and including) the big one. The linked search (if it works) is interactive but here's a static image, with a green star added for the approximate location of my home. I was at the airport at the time of the quake.

    Anyone have an interesting photo of cracked walls or broken cornices or anything? Fallen books in wavy rows? Fallen beer bottle? Something geological?
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    I don't have any photos of my own but you don't have to google very far to get them. Keywords: alaska, earthquake, "glenn highway", minnesota, and "vine road" to name a few.

    That's one heck of a quake cluster you've got going there. Has anyone compiled a convenient Time, Intensity, Depth and Location list,
    like this for Vatnajökull ?

    Yes, if you go to the link and select “Click for more information” at the top of the lefthand list, you can download the data in CSV and other formats.

    I saw this on the television (in a metro train) in a language I can't understand. There were American flags in some of the scenes, so I figured it was in the US, but then I checked the news web sites, and didn't find word one about it. I was actually beginning to wonder if maybe it was historical footage, when I finally saw a web story about it.

    I was a bit surprised that television news in Asia, with multiple video shoots of people ducking for cover, picked this up before the US-based web sites.

    I don't know why you didn't find it but it was in fact widely reported and very soon after it occurred. Google search keywords: alaska earthquake news stories; Filter: Nov 30, 2018. Results

    Today's aftershock tally is 2800-plus. I downloaded more seismic data this afternoon and came up with a distribution chart of magnitudes:

    So, as much as we complain about the stronger ones...we had a 4.8M this afternoon...the vast majority of them are quite mild.

    I cruised up and down the front pages of some of the US news service web sites, expecting to see a story about an earthquake in big letters, but found nothing. Maybe it had already passed out of the front page, or maybe I get defaulted to some international edition of the page that didn't have it, I don't know.

    But I was seriously beginning to wonder if perhaps I had been watching some sort of documentary with historical footage, until I later found a story somewhere.

    I saw the report initially via geoscience Twitter accounts I follow. I went to local and national news sites and they all had huge red banners declaring "BREAKING NEWS! EARTHQUAKE STRIKES ALASKA. TSUNAMI WARNING ISSUED!" and the like. Shortly thereafter, they had multiple "front" page news articles (some of them repeating useless and old information 1000 times, but front page nonetheless). Maybe you have site personalized and some sort of algorithm decided it wasn't newsworthy for you?

    7.0 Earthquake in Alaska 11-30-2018

    Well heck! The quake we had today in the South was bigger; 4.4 in Tennessee (and only 9 km down) but it still rattled our walls in Georgia. Go figure.

    Yeah, we've only had 27 aftershocks or so in the last 7 days that were 3.0M or higher. [Ref: USGS] I haven't felt most of them.
