Earthquakes in Alaska

Question: I live in Alaska, and am worried about the ground exploding and things falling on my head. Where can I find information about fault lines and earthquakes in Alaska?

Answer: Not to worry! We have you covered.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center has plenty of information about our earthquakes, including a list of notable earthquakes and a preparedness guide.

Inside the section titled “Earthquake Info” are maps showing the location Alaska’s fault lines, shown as red lines.
Fault lines are also shown in their FAQ page

If you’d like to see where the most recent earthquakes happened, they have an often updated map showing activity for the past few days.

For additional information about earthquakes, visit the U.S. Geological Survey’s earthquake page:
