People working in Anchorage fled from buildings into the streets or took cover under desks. The shaking caused significant interior damage to buildings, according to videos and images on social media. The quakes knocked down ceiling tiles and sent items flying from shelves.
This is what happened on the 6th floor of the Nesbett Courthouse during the Anchorage #earthquake. Both attorneys jumped under their desks. Evacuated the building after the shaking stopped. pic.twitter.com/dqHGPCv6XO
