Today during the 50th anniversary week of the Great Alaskan Earthquake and Tsunami, we continue our Waves of Destruction series, brought to you by a partnership with the Kodiak College.
Today we’ll hear from Art Zimmer.
Kodiak builder Art Zimmer was in the midst of loading lumber onto his flatbed when the earthquake struck. He was relatively new to town and did not know that tsunamis often follow large earthquakes in coastal Alaska.
