A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has rocked buildings in Anchorage, the U.S. Geological Survey says. A tsunami warning has been issued 30 miles south-west of Palmer, Alaska. There are numerous reports of damage coming in. A magnitude of between 7 and 7.9 is considered a major earthquake that will cause serious damage.

Terrified residents took to social media to share their experiences of the tremor with video posted on Twitter showing people taking cover under tables as light fixtures and furniture rocks back and forth.
