Tsunami survivors across Alaska are telling their stories this week for archiving at the Pacific Tsunami Museum in Hawaii. Jeanne Johnston and Walter Dudley are co-founders of the museum. They’re interviewing more than 25 people who lived through the 1964 Good Friday tsunami in Seward, Valdez and Cordova. In September, they’ll also record stories in Kodiak.
