I remember the '64 quake quite well.Years later, I met a guy who had been working up there at a NASA tracking station. He and one of his buddies had a day off, and were out riding dirt bikes. They stopped for a break, and his friend stated yelling to "LOOK AT THAT!", and he said they watched a wave come moving through the land at high speed, and just instinctively hit the dirt.He said he'd never forget it as long as he lived.
Those were reported by a number of the survivors, Jim - most now can't quite believe it.
Wow, just, wow. I pray that never happens here in new england. Although teh 'tists are saying that we're loooong overdue. God help us.
I hope not, for your sake. It's definitely ungood.
Yep, large earthquakes are not fun to be in.The biggest one that I've been in was the Northridge earthquake that happened when I was living in San Pedro.San Pedro is right on the coast, and is a soil liquefaction area. The whole city just wobbled like a big bowl of Jell-o, but only had minor damage.The poor people in Northridge didn't fare so well.....
