Miriam Hilscher was knocked to the floor by a violent, unseen force and couldn't get up. She had no way of knowing whether her daughter and husband, in other parts of the house, were safe. Not until the rolling and shaking stopped 4 1/2 minutes later. The Hilschers all survived the gigantic, 8.5-magnitude earthquake that ripped through Alaska in 1964. One hundred and thirty-one others didn't.

Redoubt Volcano blew its top again shortly after a moderate earthquake rocked a wide area of Alaska and geologists said the two events might be related. Redoubt's latest eruption sent an ash plume 35,000 feet high blowing toward the sparsely populated mountainous region to the northwest, the Alaska Volcano Observatory said. Geologists said the eruption from the 10,197-foot mountain 110 miles southwest of Anchorage appeared to shoot less ash into the sky than in previous eruptions.

A major earthquake jolted south-central Alaska today, knocking out power to one community and prompting authorities to urge the evacuation of low-lying coastal areas because of a possible sea wave. The quake struck at 11:23 a.m. PST and measured 7.4 on the Richter scale. It was centered 300 miles southeast of Anchorage in the Gulf of Alaska. The Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer issued a warning covering nearly the entire southern coastline of the state and coastal British Columbia.
