The 7.0-magnitude quake was centered about 10 miles northeast of Anchorage, where Providence Alaska Medical Center reported only cosmetic damage. The association’s Anchorage office also received only minimal damage. President Trump Friday declared an emergency in the state and ordered federal assistance to supplement state and local response efforts in affected areas.
