The Alaska Earthquake of March 27, 1964, was the strongest earthquake ever recorded on the North American Continent. Loss of life, although substantial. Was not nearly as great as that resulting from a number of other earthquakes; for example, nearly 11.000 persons lost their lives in the earthquake in northeastern Iran on August 31, 1968.
