The massive earthquake that hammered Anchorage on Friday also damaged the 170-mile transmission line known as the Intertie, which along with the Northern Intertie brings power from southeast Alaska into the Interior. Because of that, Golden Valley Electric Association has been running its backup generators to compensate for the 30 megawatts that GVEA is now unable to get over the Intertie.

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.
