AK Earthquake Center Dec 10
We passed the 4000 aftershock mark overnight. For comparison, last December we recorded fewer than 3000 quakes all month in the entire state. The cumulative aftershock graph (top right) is flattening a bit & magnitudes in the mag-time graph (lower right) seem to be trending down.

Due to extensive damage on the Glenn Hwy, MP 23-25, Eklutna-Mirror Lake, we request that agencies keep employees home Monday, if possible. The Glenn is open, but only one lane of traffic in each direction in this section. Travel not essential? Avoid the area.
