Fifty Years Later

Today is the fiftieth anniversary of the Good Friday Earthquake, the most powerful¬†in recorded US history, which caused immense destruction in¬†Southcentral Alaska and permanently reshaped the economic geography of the region along with its geology. Two years ago I wrote a post about the quake and earlier ones in prehistoric Alaska that may have had comparable effects, so I won’t go into the details now. It was an important event and this is an important anniversary, however, so I figured I should at least note it.
