Aftershocks shake Southcentral Wednesday morning
A pair of aftershocks shook Southcentral late Wednesday morning.
The first, a magnitude 4.1 occurred at 11:04 a.m., just 13 miles northwest of JBER. The 24-mile deep earthquake was felt in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Borough.
Just 23 minutes later a second aftershock, magnitude 3.7 hit 11 miles northwest of Anchorage. The 11:27 a.m. earthquake was 27 miles deep.
Today's 4.1 aftershock is the 41st aftershock of magnitude 4.0 or larger. There have been about 350 of magnitude 3.0 or larger and more than 8,000 aftershocks since November's magnitude 7.0 earthquake.
Remember, aftershocks are a normal part of any earthquake. Ones of this magnitude or even larger are a part of the ground settling, and will likely continue in the months to come. They do not indicate any future seismic activity.
