A couple of days after a pair of powerful earthquakes shook Alaska, the US government released the most detailed maps yet of the quake’s aftermath.
The US Geological Survey (USGS) and the US Bureau of Reclamation released the maps on Thursday, which provide a much more detailed view of how the quakes hit the region.
Here’s what you need to know about the quake, its impact and what’s being done to protect the US from further earthquakes.
How to get the maps The maps, which were released on Thursday morning, were made available by the USGS and US Bureau on the request of the US Geological Service (USGSS).
The USGS released the quake maps in response to a request from the US Congress.
USGS scientists from the National Seismic Network (NSN) have mapped more than 6,000 quakes and tsunami waves since 1906, according to the USGSS.
The maps were produced using the NSN’s seismic and faulting data and analysis tools.
The USGS map shows the quake that caused the Alaska Tsunami in July 1847.
The quake hit a fault, which then triggered a tsunami that killed nearly 2,000 people in the region of Kodiak, Alaska.
The Tsunamis were followed by another tsunami that devastated Japan’s coast in October 1889, killing about 16,000.
The earthquake struck at about 1:25 a.m. local time, just over 15 minutes after the US Pacific Plate began to move.
That’s when the fault in the Pacific plate, which lies just west of the Aleutian Islands, ruptured.
The rupture is called a plate tectonic event.
The US Geological Services mapped the epicenter of the Alaska Earthquake on the southernmost edge of the Pacific Plate, and the fault, called a Tunguska fault, on the north-eastern edge of that plate.
The fault runs parallel to the northward movement of the ocean and, like many faults, it has a steep slope.
This causes the plate to sink in one direction and the ocean to rise in the other.
In the US, the Pacific plates move north and south at a rate of about 3.5 inches per year.
When the plate sinks, it is called an earthquake.
An earthquake is usually followed by a tsunami.
In this case, a tsunami is caused by the earthquake.
The tectonically active plate moves westward as it is tectons beneath the Pacific Ocean are ruptured, which can send tsunamis up into the atmosphere.
