3rd Minto Earthquake Rocks Interior

There was another strong earthquake, followed by dozens of aftershocks, in the interior today (Thurs). A magnitude 5 earthquake at 8:30 am was centered in the Minto area northwest of Fairbanks. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports there have been no reports of damage, but the quake, the latest in series in the same area, has drawn concern from seismologists.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
