I doubt whether you'll find any living here now who would want another quake like 1964.
You know I drive a concrete mixer during the season around the MatSu and I am familiar with what the ground is like all over, lady friend asked me summer about home along Fairview Loop, I told her just south and I meant like very close nearby that section of the valley subsided substantially during the 64 quake.
I told her of places that are slightly higher in elevation and are basically build on rock, a very rocky area I believe is much lees prone to ground liquefaction. But a lot of places are also on ancient silt plains, The Turnagin Heights area of east Anchorage had its ground turned to jello basically.
Of course not.
I worked the summer of ‘65 on an offshore rig at Trading Bay and the devastation a year later was still pretty extensive. The only tall building still allowed occupancy was the hotel (can’t remember the name...Captain Cook?) downtown with the Crow’s Nest bar at the top.
Worked 21 days straight for a day-and-a-half off in Anchorage. I doubt OSHA work rules would allow that today.
