It’s been a year since the largest earthquake to shake Alaska since 1964 hit the Southcentral region, causing widespread damage to homes, schools, businesses and roads. But even with millions of dollars in destruction happening in seconds, no one was killed. Was it building codes, epicenter location or just luck? We’ll discuss what was learned and how emergency managers and engineers will use it for future construction on the next Talk of Alaska.
