Since the anniversary of the 1964 quake is coming up I thought this site is relevant.   The site gives an explanation to what is happening with the plates that led to the earthquake.

“The area where the earthquake occurred is a subduction zone where the Pacific Plate is subducting beneath the North American Plate. The crust of southern Alaska was compressed and warped due to plate movement prior to the great earthquake after the plates locked together.’
