'Pretty Extreme': Alaska Man on 10th Floor of Building When Massive 7.0 Earthquake Hit
On "Outnumbered Overtime," Harris Faulkner spoke to an Alaska man who witnessed the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that rocked the state on Friday.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was centered about five miles north of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city. A tsunami warning was issued for the area, including Cook Inlet and the Southern Kenai Peninsula.
Ben English was on the 10th floor of Anchorage's Frontier Building when the quake hit.
"The higher you are, the more you sway, so the shaking is magnified," English said. "It was pretty extreme."
He estimated that the continual shaking lasted for more than a minute, and there have been "some pretty major" aftershocks.
"A lot of people are stuck on the roads, there's infrastructure problems and everybody's trying to get out at once. And the schools actually texted out to all the parents to come pick up their kids," English said. "So, there's just major gridlock now."
Reason said he experienced a 7.6 quake in 2002, but that was "much, much, much less intense" because the epicenter was a couple hundred miles away.
