Wow with such a powerful earthquake, how would you describe the movement? Was it fast and voilent or slow and long? Up and down or side to side? Did it make all of the buildings rattle and roar?

We were stationed in Adak from 1976-1977 (my dad was in the Navy). I was in elementary school at the time. My parents took several photos while we were there. We lived in Middle Amulet housing, and we could see Mt. Sitkin through our living room window and Mt. Moffett through our kitchen window. I have a lot of memories (from a kid's perspective) from that year. We left before the earthquake in 1977. It's a shame the base was closed. My dad told me that many people dreaded being stationed there, but our family really enjoyed the year we spent in Adak.

I was born on Adak in 1959. My Dad was in the SeaBees. Have not had the chance to go back yet, made it as far as Dutch Harbor.

Adak Reunion anyone? Excuse for a vacation to nowhere?

Adak looks different than it did in 1964-1966 when I lived there as a 2-4 year old.
