Alaska's most populated city is located along the Cook Inlet. Anchorage was founded in 1914 as a railroad camp and grew into a key shipment center for the oil industry. The city suffered a devastating earthquake in March of 1964 measuring 9.2 on the Richter scale, the strongest magnitude ever to hit a North American city. The rebuilt city grew over the following decades into Alaska's chief commercial and banking center.
