Anchorage Gets 5pm Jolt (4.2)

A very short but sharp earthquake jolted me a few minutes ago while I was on the phone with my mom.  This was not one of those quakes where you say, "Was that an earthquake?"  But I don't think I felt it for more than a couple of seconds.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center (AEIC) doesn't have the magnitude yet but it was 2 miles from Eagle River.  Here's from their site:

[UPDATE 5:18:  Earthquake Track is calling it a 4.2.  Not that big as earthquakes go, but as I said, it was a sharp jolt.]
