MIAMI -

On this date, while not weather related, earthquakes are still noteworthy. For instance, on this date in 1964, one of the strongest earthquakes on record (magnitude 8.6) struck off the coast of Alaska. This quake damaged many Alaskan coastal towns and produced powerful tsunamis that affected a large area of the Pacific. Fifteen people were killed by a tsunami as it hit the coasts of Oregon and California.
