So How Big Is Alaska?

So big that the only way anyone noticed a gigantic avalanche is that it registered on seismographs as a 3.8-magnitude earthquake.
"It showed on all our instruments on mainland Alaska," Natalia Ruppert of the earthquake information center said, adding that the amplitude of the event was about equal to a magnitude 3.8 earthquake and more than 200 seismometers all over the state picked up its vibrations.
