Alaskan Earthquake

In the middle of nowhere, and not very big for this place.  You can see from the map that this is a very active subduction zone.  M8's and 9's are the big boys in this neighbourhood.  It would be difficult to get an M9 around that sharp curve near Russia, but it is very easy on that straight stretch towards Anchorage.
