A massive 7.2 quake hit Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, in the early hours of Friday afternoon. The US Geological Survey has reported the earthquake originated around 7 miles away from Anchorage and locals reported buildings swaying because of the quake and its aftershocks. Local authorities have issued a tsunami warning covering coastal communities in southern Alaska shortly after the earthquake.

Terrifying footage shared on Twitter captured the devastating effects the earthquake had on the main road leading Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage.

A large sinkhole can be seen splitting the highway in two, with a car teetering on the edge of the hole.

People can be heard in the background warning each other to stay away from the edge because of the possibility of the road opening up further.

A tsunami warning is in effect for the Cook Inlet area and Southern Kenai Peninsula, according to the National Tsunami Warning Center.
