Thursday, March 27, is the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake, the largest ever recorded in North America. Ketchikan is home to a few people who experienced the magnitude 9.2 temblor first-hand, including Tom Fowler. He was only 4 years old when it hit, but he remembers the event, and even what he was reading at the time. He sat down with KRBD’s Leila Kheiry to reminisce. Here’s a portion of their conversation.
