State of Emergency Declared in Alaska: What Now Wait?
ALASKA - December 1, 2018
Federal authorities issued an emergency declaration for Alaska after a magnitude 7 earthquake struck on Friday, which left thousands without electricity and temporarily shut the state’s most important oil pipeline.
More than 190 small earthquakes have hit parts of Alaska since Friday, authorities said.
According to the US Geological Survey, the first and most powerful quake was centered about 7.5 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, with a population of about 300,000

People ran from their offices or took cover under desks. The 5.7 aftershock arrived within minutes, followed by a series of smaller quakes.
"We just hung onto each other. You couldn't even stand," said Sheila Bailey, who was working at a high school cafeteria in Palmer, about 45 miles from Anchorage, when the quake struck. "It sounded and felt like the school was breaking apart."
The main forces were sent to help for Anchorage as well as Kenai Peninsula and Matanuska-Susitna boroughs, according to an alert from the Department of Homeland Security. The temblor hit 8 miles north of Anchorage.
Alaska Gov. Bill Walker said it will take more than a week or two to repair roads damaged by the powerful earthquake. The Anchorage airport was reopened Friday afternoon and is operating at reduced capacity, a state official told the Associated Press.
The earthquake also affected the 800-mile Trans Alaska Pipeline System that carries crude from the Arctic coast to the marine terminal in Valdez, which was shut for seven hours. It was restarted late Friday, Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. spokeswoman Michelle Egan said by phone. The line, which has the capacity to move 2 million barrels a day, had transported 530,000 barrels on Thursday.
President Trump quickly responded to the first message about the incident by writing on Twitter that the U.S. government would "spare no expense." The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency have since been authorized to provide assistance as well as federal funding for the disaster.
To the Great people of Alaska. You have been hit hard by a “big one.” Please follow the directions of the highly trained professionals who are there to help you. Your Federal Government will spare no expense. God Bless you ALL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 30, 2018
Alaska was the site of the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the U.S. The 9.2-magnitude quake on March 27, 1964, was centred about 75 miles east of Anchorage. It and the tsunami it triggered claimed about 130 lives.
Alaska has been hit by a number of powerful quakes over 7 in recent decades, including a 7.9 last January southeast of Kodiak Island. But it is rare for a quake this big to strike so close to such a heavily populated area.
Alaska is not known for being seismically calm, nor is it the most densely populated area, thus, at first glance, a 7 or 8 earthquake might not be such a hot topic. It’s happened many times before. The issue lies elsewhere.
On November 19 of this year, some media published the news by the End Times Forecaster resource, according to the observations of which the strongest earthquakes on the planet go in a cycle of 188 days.
Based on these observations, the End Times Forecaster predicted that there would be a large earthquake around November 28. And, as you can see-the forecast was confirmed.
Perhaps this cycle can be explained by the movement of the satellite Nibiru which has a 376-day cycle. Once every 188 days this satellite lines up with the Earth, and, as a result, there are earthquakes.
Perhaps some will say that Nibiru does not exist, but Uranus and Neptune also cannot be seen by the naked eye, though their effect is seen elsewhere, and it’s the same with Nibiru.
If anyone has a more convincing theory explaining the 188-day cycle, we will gladly listen and even print it. In the meantime, follow the cycle’s development and let’s see what happens in the next few days.
Moreover, despite the doubters, climate change is happening, with serious consequences such as Alaska just experienced.
People need to accept that the changes are happening and prepare for them.
