Alaska is the most seismically active place in America and one of the most earthquake prone areas on the planet. There were numerous large earthquakes in the 1960s followed by a few decades of relative calm, but that’s changed in recent years. It’s not a matter of if, but when for the next big earthquake in Alaska.
