Remember how helpless we all felt after the ground quit quaking and we re-entered our homes if they were still standing? Sirens, ham radio operator message relays, and National Guardsmen rescuing people trapped in the wreckage that Good Friday in 1964. I was one scared kid—in a frontier town of 100,000 people. Now some Alaskans are joining hundreds of Red Cross volunteers from all over the country to provide safe shelter and comfort to people impacted by the hurricane disaster from Tropical Storm Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.
