JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy takes office Monday, days after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked heavily-populated south-central Alaska. Dunleavy initially planned to make a 65-mile (105-kilometer) trek by snowmobile from the western Alaska hub city of Kotzebue to Noorvik for the swearing in. Noorvik is a tiny Inupiat Eskimo village above the Arctic Circle where his wife, Rose, is from. By Becky Bohrer. Will be updated after swearing in ceremony. AP file photo sent; photos from the ceremony planned.
ANCHORAGE — Some Alaskans went back to work Monday, the first work day after a powerful earthquake shook Anchorage and the surrounding area. Residents still jittery after the magnitude 7.0 bolt have had nerves further frayed by nearly 1,500 aftershocks since the Friday morning temblor. Every time the earth shakes again, residents are fearful this might be another big one. By Rachel D’Oro. UPCOMING: 600 words by 2 p.m. AP File photos.
