3/27/64: The Kenai Peninsula Remembers 'The Big One'

Ariel Van Cleave and Aaron Selbig

The “Good Friday Earthquake,” as it is now known, struck at 5:36 p.m., March 27th, 1964, and forever changed how parts of Alaska look. The quake and the tsunami waves that followed claimed the lives of 131 people from Alaska and down the western coast of the United States. We’ll start our story at the earthquake’s epicenter in Prince William Sound.
