of 1964. I remember the pictures both from the News broadcasts and from Life magazine. I think it was Juneau where the main street was all twisted and at one point torn apart, with vehicles tossed, still tires down but higgledy piggledy along the street. Being an Easterner I didn't remember the a tsunami that followed. The program showed Port Alberni after the tsunami where it was the houses that were all higgledy piggledy. A woman who was known to always have a cup of coffee on the stove sitting over the pilot light found her house 1000 feet away, having been been picked up, swept up the street and eventually deposited in a field. The cup of coffee was still in place on the stove.
Apparently Crescent City, California got hit pretty bad, no one was killed in Port Alberni, but 5 people went back into Crescent City after the first surge and got caught by the second one.
Vancouver Island is being dragged toward the mainland by the Cascadia subduction plate, and then slips backward to the west, just not as much. This all happens exactly every 14 months. Too weird.
Between Cascadia and the Yellowstone Basin, I hope we all survive.
