MINTO — Sarah Silas, 89, smiled as she remembered an earthquake that shook her village more than 60 years ago. The floor of her cabin swayed so that her young son staggered away from her.
"My three-year old boy was laughing," she said inside her log cabin, its front door open to warm air on a golden day. "The ground was moving so much I couldn't even reach my little son."
Earthquakes are nothing new to Alaskans, but few people understand the significance of strategic earthquake planning. On Tuesday, June 17, 2014, Governor Parnell signed a bill to extend the term of the Alaska Seismic Hazard Safety Commission until June 30, 2020.
