Natural Disasters I've Been Through: The Great Alaskan Earthquake, Good Friday,1964

Good luck to our friends in New Jersey with Hurricane Sandy. Natural Disasters reveal just how puny our human plans and timetables really are.

Damage to Fourth Avenue, in Anchorage, Alaska, caused by the Good Friday Earthquake. Collapse of Fourth Avenue near C Street in Anchorage due to a landslide caused by the earthquake. Before the shock, the sidewalk on the left, which is in the ditch, was at street level on the right. The ditch fell 11 feet in response to 14 feet of horizontal movement.
