A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Alaska on Friday, the United States Geological Survey said, prompting authorities to declare a tsunami warning.

The quake hit about eight miles north of Anchorage. Videos posted to social media showed students taking shelter under desks and grocery store items knocked off shelves.

"Reports of road damage have been confirmed, including International Airport Road," Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport said from its official Twitter account, adding that drivers should take "extreme caution."

To nip some confusion in the bud, the video is dark, sunrise in Anchorage today was at 9:44AM local time

The Earthquake happened at 08:29:28 AKST local time, 09:29 PST, or 17:29:28 UTC

Alaska is home to HAARP, so expect a bunch of HAARP conspiracy theories to spring up.
