Yikes, with all the earthquakes we've had in Alaska this year I thought I'd start doing some research on the big one -- the 1964 Alaska earthquake. Here's a link to 1964 Alaska earthquake facts I've uncovered on my One Man's Alaska website.
2011 Update: Late February, 2011, and the earthquakes have started again in this part of Alaska. Yesterday there was a small earthquake near Wasilla and Palmer, and this morning there was an earthquake in Fairbanks, Alaska.
2011 Update #2: I recently wondered if we've had over 1,000 earthquakes in Alaska yet this year. I just looked on the USGS website, and saw that in one week alone we just had 290 earthquakes in Alaska.
