(FOX NEWS) – A 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the state of Alaska on Friday morning, churning up roads and sending office workers running to the streets in scenes locals described as pure “anarchy.”

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was centered about 5 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. There were no reported injuries.

“It was anarchy,” Brandon Slaton, a resident of nearby Kenai, Alaska, told the Associated Press. “There’s no pictures left on the walls, there’s no power, there’s no fish tank left. Everything that’s not tied down is broke.”

The National Weather Service issued a tsunami warning for the Cook Inlet and the Southern Kenai Peninsula shortly after the earthquake, but later canceled it. Police in Alaska’s Kodiak island community had told residents to head to higher ground.
