On Friday at 8:29 a.m. local time, a massive earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck eight miles north of Anchorage, Alaska, violently shaking residents awake. According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake was a result of “normal faulting” and occurred at about a depth of 25 miles. Normal as might have been, this earthquake rocked the Alaskan city, as videos from locals suggest.

Shortly after the earthquake, Anchorage resident and Twitter user @sid_lynnnn uploaded the video above, showing the local Anchorage Snapchat story. The scenes showed power outages, broken roads, traffic jams, collapsing shelves, and continuing aftershocks.
