'64 quake focus of Anchorage Museum exhibit


by Your Alaska Link News Team

An exhibit recalling the devastating 1964 Alaska earthquake features the good and the bad of the quake.

Reports say the exhibit called "Riskland: Remembering the 1964 Earthquake" opened Friday at the Anchorage Museum. It will run until mid-September.

The earthquake was the second highest ever recorded at magnitude 9.2. The quake and resulting tsunamis killed 131 people.

But curator Greg Danner says there were positives that came out of the quake, and the exhibit attempts to highlight them, as well.

Among those are advances that have been made in science in the last 50 years.
