At 9:10am on April 8, Alaskans from the Kenai Peninsula to Fairbanks had a little shakeup to start their day when a magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit. (As of the time this article was posted, there were no damage reports.) Several Earthquake Center staff felt it in Fairbanks. Some people reported feeling a small first shake followed by a rolling wave. The earthquake originated 16 miles southeast of Cantwell, nearly 100 miles from Fairbanks, so why was it felt so far across the state?
