travel very difficult in the area and obviously we're waiting to find out if al all these reports still coming in. joe from ktva our affiliate i update. >> that was heck of an earthquake. this thing hit hard and hit fast did a lot of newsroom. there's things all over the place trying to get the information out to the people. phones off the hook, water pipes broke, so everything is soaked in here. you can see a few people trying to get the information out. this is our assignment desk right back over here, this is one of our reporter spots where we do live shots trashed. people over here on the phones, again trying to get information out. we have reporters, producers and everybody working here. i want to talk to john thompson,
john, i'm going to interrupt you for a second. you were here when this happen happened. you were on the air downstairs. >> actually right here. it was about an hour and half after off air getting ready for the day, take a couple of stgeready for the evening newscast. in fact the news producer said, john, he was going to ask me a erous boom.en all of a sudden you felt earthquakes before where it's a slow build almost like tom then it goes away. this was just a smack. it was just sudden, it was loud. it was hard after about two seconds i actually got down right near my desk. that is my desk. i got right down under here and as you can see good structure right here because as things were crash can down around me, we got glass doors right across the way coming down, smashed glass everywhere. but as we were watching this, we were safe. >> that is the important thing,
we've been told no one has been hurt in the newsroom that is the best news we'vtht oomr but od ba to you. >> glor: they tell during earthquakes, get under something and hold on while the earthquake is going on.hat's happening outside the studio. talk to me about some of the damage that you all have seen on some of the major roadways and what sells happening. >> that's right, jeff. minnesota, this is one of the main thoroughfares we're told has been heavily damaged. we understand that the seward highway there have been rocks that have dropped on to the highway so that's pretty much shut down at this point. that's a main thoroughfare to get people on to the kenai peninsula. people coming and going aren't going through right now. one of the hospitals we know for sure is open, ted stevens international airport is open we're continuing to look for mo fire, i
believe we have video of that, that's what we know right now. we'll be here all day working to see what else happens. in this newsroom again take a look. it hit hard and fast. everybody escaped, no injuries, jeff. >> glor: it's scary to see. but great to hear that no one is hurt there. all right, joe, stand by. so this happened at 8:29 a.m. local time in alaska. we are being told by u.s. geological survey, it was centered seven miles note of anchorage. obviously a lot of folks sought shelter under desks. at 8:55 national tsal hearts of cook inlet and kenai peninsula. the tsunami warning as i en withdrawn. somebody please correct me if i'm wrong on that. we should say alaska does average a lot of earthquakes, all the time. but this has been the worst
since 2016, that one was over 7 but that was farther off shore and it was deeper so the reason why you're seeing so much damage here today is because the earthquake was shallow and it was right near anchorage. jamie, correspondent based in los angeles has more details now just coming in on this earthquake, jamie. >> reporter: what you're talking about so true. it happened just seven miles north of anchorage, alaska, that's why you're seeing so much damage across the city. and to give you an idea, 40,000 earthquakes per year happen in the state of alaska. but as we've been hearing from multiple people that we're calling on the phone trying to reach out to this is the worst one people have seen in the city of anchorage. it is alaska's largest city, of course so many pictures are that's what the governor has been talking about online as well. he asked for disaster declaration because of those
roadways, they are checking bridges right now, the now ramps in terms of getting to and from the airport. ted stevens did have to evacuate air traffic control tower so they're trying to divert planes away. there was a scary moment that was caught on audio when air traffic control had to tell a fed ex plane to go around as the earthquake itself was occurring. we've been told that minor damage to the airport but the bigger damage is those around the airport itself. we have no word right now as to the extent of damage to the runways at the airport. built as we continue to monitor these pictures, jeff, of course just more and more damage coming in we'll keep up to date. >> glor: thanks very much. one of the big concerns in and around anchorage this afternoon is going to be emergency respo responders, especially trying to use ways have buckled there ar collapsed. obviously westill gathering
our reporting on all of this. we will continue to do thatl afternoon long. scary situation in anchorage today, good news is that it appears the tsunami warning after that area has now been lifted we have not heard so far about major reports of injuries but we're certainly watching everything that is happening in alaska after this major earthquake today. we'll have a lot more on all of this on your local news including on ktva in anchorage there which is doing wonderful job documenting what's happening and staying on the air. also streaming network cbsn and very latest tonight on "the cbs evening news" for now i'm jeff glor in new york. . a magnitude
