    I live in Nenana. Immediately prior to the event I heard an extremely large “boom”… though my house is earthquaked proofed. It hit my house hard. Like a truck. Quite powerfully. Shaking my house, myself and Everthing in my home. The sound was over whelming. Which continued to vibrate after the shock had passed. Nothing on tune main floor broke, but everything is crooked. I’ve ye to check the lower downstairs bedrooms. Or the upstairs master bedroom. Waiting for after shocks before I go roaming around. .
