Earthquake Strikes South-Central Alaska

An extremely intense earthquake struck South-Central Alaska at 1:12 PM local time on November 3, 2002 with a magnitude of 7.9. The quake was strong enough to damage the Alaska Pipelines supports (the pipeline itself did not break), and crack nearby roads. No injuries were reported. This shaded-relief image shows the location of the earthquake, which occured on the Denali fault which runs alongside the Alaska Range. The fault appears as a dark arch running across the image.
