Bristol Palin Sends Prayers to Alaska in Wake of Devastating Earthquake

by at .

Bristol Palin has taken a break from slamming her ex-husband in order to send a message of support to everyone in Alaska.

On Friday morning, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake his Palin's native state of Alaska, damaging highways, shaking buildings and focusing its power about eight miles north of Anchorage, the most populous city in the region.

Governor Bill Walker issued a disaster declaration in response, while the Anchorage Police Department said the following in an official statement:

"There is major infrastructure damage across Anchorage. Many homes and buildings are damaged. Many roads and bridges are closed.”

As of this writing, no deaths have been reported.

Thank goodness.

Bristol, of course, hails from Wasilla, Alaska.

However, she lives in Austin, Texas and was not around her friends, family members or loved ones up north when this natural diaster struck.

But Palin says she was with them in spirit.

And they are very much on her mind at the moment.

“Just sick I’m not in Alaska to help my family and friends with the aftermath of the massive earthquake they had this morning, sending all the prayers to everyone affected,” she wrote on social media shortly after news of the incident went public.

The Palin family resident is about 44 miles northeast of Anchorage and the compound was damaged during the earthquake.

Such damage was confirmed by Bristol's famous mother, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

“Our family is intact - house is not… I imagine that’s the case for many, many others,” the former Alaska Governor wrote via Twitter, adding:

"So thankful to be safe; praying for our state following the earthquake."

Elsewhere, Bristol’s younger sister, Willow, was left in shock and in pretty bad shape after the sort of frightening experience you must deal with first hand to fully comprehend.

“Our house is a mess but our family is safe, very shook up! That was the scariest couple minutes of my life," she wrote to followers.

Oh Vey, Right?

Bristol was out of the spotlight for many years, but has now joined the cast of Teen Mom OG on MTV.

Not only had she joined it, but Palin has been at the forefront of nearly every episode, as viewers have watched her marriage to Dakota Meyer fall apart before their very eyes.

It's been pretty ugly, to be honest.

“When you get rid of the cancer in your life, you can go live,” Meyer actually said recently about splitting from Bristol.

Ouch, right?

But now isn't the time to relitigate the issues that faced this couple.

Now is the time to join in with the thoughts and prayers being sent to the residents of Alaska. We're thinking of you guys.
