Good morning, kids. Breaking early this morning is the news of a massive earthquake that struck off the coast of the Alaskan peninsula with a magnitude of 8.2. That is an insanely powerful quake. Considering the '94 Northridge Quake was 6.7, and the San Francisco quake in '89 was 6.9, if the epicenter of this one had been anywhere near a populated area, the destruction would have been catastrophic to say the least. Looks like we dodged a big bullet, but that said, the Pacific plate is in motion.
