A magnitude 6.67 earthquake struck at 11 p.m. Thursday night, 80 miles northeast of Chignik, according to NOAA. KTUU viewers report feeling the quake in areas across Southcentral Alaska.
Had Alaska’s 1964 earthquake happened just a half-hour earlier than it did, many people would have been spared, but as it happened, life in Chenega was busy on the beaches and coastline where the many lived.
The Chenega tribe lost more than one-third its population in 1964 when a tsunami triggered by the Good Friday Earthquake destroyed their village.
