One Man's Alaska

This day in history ... the 1964 Alaska earthquake

March 27, 2011

On this day in history ... 5:36pm, 1964 ... a 9.2 magnitude earthquake rocked Alaska for more than five minutes, followed in the next several days by more than 10,000 aftershocks, with eleven aftershocks in the first day having a magnitude greater than 6.0. I'd write more about it here, but I've covered a lot of it already in my 1964 Alaska earthquake facts article.
