A Truck Collides with our Building and a Major Earthquake

Dec 5, 2018 12:39:55 PM / by Lynn Skurla Perkins posted in Skurla's POS, Alaska Earthquake, Open for Business, Skurla's Point of Sale


It was quite a month for many Alaskans - like surviving a major earthquake, just to name one thing.

We have had over 1,800 aftershocks as of yesterday, roads are being repaired, schools are still closed, but no one suffered serious injury - amazing.

At Skurla's, we also started the month with a "jolt" - literally. On November 19th, a truck careened into the front wall of our office.  It destroyed the conference room wall, many of the contents, and part of Jeff's office. We are so grateful that this happened before we opened - the outcome could have been much different.  See pictures below!
