The Nov. 3 quake struck a remote and sparsely populated area near Denali National Park and caused only minor injuries, though it damaged three major highways and forced officials to temporarily shut down the Trans-Alaska pipeline. A team of geologists who spent a week studying the temblor determined that it was...
