Palin's message comes after her mother Sarah Palin revealed that their family home had been severely damaged during the earthquake that struck Southern Alaska on Nov. 30.

"[Pray] for Alaska. Our family is intact - house is not," the former vice presidential candidate tweeted. "I imagine that's the case for many, many others. So thankful to be safe; praying for our state following the earthquake."

She later shared that her own parents' home suffered damage as well.

"My parents home in Wasilla is usually in tip top shape. Here it is this morning following the earthquake," she captioned a video clip that was shard across all of her social media platforms. "The video doesn't begin to show the scope."

The massive 7.0 earthquake hit the last Frontier state early on Friday morning, causing major damage from town to town.

Following the quake, warnings of possible tsunami waves were reported, but luckily those warnings were soon cancelled.

Alaska Gov. Bill Walker soon declared a state of emergency and sent out a message to all those affected by the earthquake.

"After a major earthquake, I have issued a declaration of disaster & I have been in direct contact with the White House," Gov. Walker wrote. "Major General Laurie Hummel & I are now working w emergency responders to make sure Alaskans are safe."

"From the incident command center established at Joint Base Elmendorf and Richardson we are closely monitoring reports of aftershocks and assessing damage to roads, bridges and buildings," he continued.

"My family is praying for yours," Gov. Walker concluded his statement. "God bless Alaska."


At this time, there is no word on just how much damage was done to the state, or how long it will take to make at the necessary infrastructure repairs.
