President Donald Trump has tweeted that the federal government “will spare no expense” helping Alaska following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that shook Anchorage.

Trump on Tuesday tweeted “you have been hit hard by a ‘big one'” and asked residents to follow officials’ directions.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tweeted that her family is OK but said her “house is not.” She did not elaborate but said the thinks “that’s the case for many, many others.”

The police chief and the mayor of Anchorage said they were unaware of any reports of deaths of injuries after the quake shook buildings and opened up crevices and cracks in roads.

Anchorage Fire Department Jodie Hettrick says there were reports of buildings collapsing but she did not have further details.
