To all the parents reading the blog, everyone was safe and no damage to our house was reported.
Alaska experienced a 5.8 magnitude earthquake near Anchor Point, approximately 200 miles south of Anchorage. There is no danger of a tsunami according to the US Geological Survey.
At approximately 8 AM, the majority of us woke up to a shaking. It only lasted for a short time since what we felt was an aftershock, but everyone can agree that it was one of the coolest experiences of the trip so far. Waking up to shaking felt like a dream made of jello. For the people who woke up, we looked around confused as to why the world was shaking like gelatin. When it stopped, we realized that we just lived through an earthquake!
