* The quake's shaking was felt in Anchorage and produced effects as far away as Louisiana
* Although the ground shifted 14 feet beneath the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, the pipe did not break, a tribute to careful geologic studies and creative engineering
* The San Andreas Fault is similar to the Denali Fault and produces comparable quakes, but unlike the Denali, runs through densely populated urban areas
* Will intensified monitoring of the Denali Fault enable us to forecast where and when the next major quake will strike on that system?
