RE: Damn Earthquakes Here in Alaska

I was living in Nunaka (spelling?) Valley during the 64 earthquake. We spent Easter Sunday touring the damage in downtown Anchorage, standing in line for typhoid and tetnis shots, then went home and hunted Easter Eggs my mom had hid in the cracks in the ground.

For months after the earthquake when we drove to Portage Glacier and Seward the silt that was washed inland by the tidal wave covered everything, and was several feet deep.

That's the price to pay to live in the Pacific Rim where the North America plate meets the Pacific plate. I have lived thru three major earthquakes in LA. They came without warning and that's the worst part, I guess.
