Carthage Native Describes Alaska Earthquake and Aftershocks

Posted: Updated:

While the big Alaska earthquakes were Friday, people are still dealing with the aftershocks.

Carthage native Heather Famiano, who now lives in Anchorage, shared some pictures of the damage with us.

Her home was okay, but clean up and fixes are still being done at the hair salon and fitness center where she works. 

She says people are still on edge because of the earthquakes.

"Scary. You don't really realize how scary it can be until it happens," she said. "We encountered aftershocks after the fact and that was like throughout the night and when you're laying down peacefully you can feel everything."

As of Monday night, there have been 1,800 aftershocks since the two major earthquakes Friday. Aftershocks are essentially small earthquakes. 

There have been no reported deaths since related to the quakes.
