      The Alaska Earthquake, also known as the Great Alaska Earthquake and the Good Friday Earthquake, was a megathrust quake that began at P.M. AST on Ma It had a moment magnitude of , making it the second largest earthquake on record. On the morning of Ma (UTC), without warning, the largest recorded earthquake in U.S. history struck Alaska’s Prince William Sound. The devastating magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunamis ravaged coastal communities and took over lives.

      - The earthquake, which occurred in Portage, eradicated the city. The earth opened up and the city sank below sea level.

Seismic seiches from the March Alaska earthquake (DLC) On Maat p.m. ( 3/28 UTC), a great earthquake of magnitude (moment magnitude) occurred in the Prince William Sound region of Alaska.

The epicenter was about 10 km east of the mouth of College Fiord, approximately 90 km west of. In addition to the Lisbon and Assam earthquakes, seismic seiches at teleseismic distances have been observed for many other large earthquakes including the Alaska (McGarr and Vorhis, ) and the Denali, Alaska, an earthquake that caused damaging seiches in Lake Union, Seattle, Washington at an epicentral distance of 2, km.

USGS published the results of investigations of the Alaska earthquake of Ma in a series of six Professional Papers. Professional Paper is an introduction to the story of a great earthquake—its geologic setting and effects, the field investigations, and the public and private reconstruction efforts.; Professional Paper describes the effects of the earthquake on.
