The Good Friday Earthquake on March 27, 1964 had its epicenter near Prince Wiliam Sound, Alaska. It lasted about 5 minutes, and caused 131 deaths, but it may not be true.

This earthquake was the 4th most powerful earthquake ever recorded, and the most powerful earthquake to have an epicenter in the United States.
