Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the Great Alaska Earthquake & Tsunami.
This geological event is the largest U.S. earthquake ever recorded in history and the second worldwide.
Imagine a 9.2 magnitude earthquake with 100 foot tsunami waves hitting the U.S. Coast of Alaska! Horrible, no?
There are those rare events that are so powerful that the defy our understanding.
The Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964 is one of those events.
It remains the strongest earthquake ever recorded in US history.
It produced unimaginable damage and a tsunami of over 100 feet high!
It is really one of the most destructive and powerful events to affect the globe in modern times.
The USGS just released an article and video detailing this unbelievable event and I wanted to share it with you tonight…
The powerful earthquake occurred on March 27, 1964 in southern Alaska at 5:36 pm.
The ground shaking lasted for nearly five minutes.
It was the largest U.S. earthquake ever recorded, and the second largest ever recorded worldwide.
