    Canadian Xpress September 2020 Monthly Challenge

    Eareckson Air Station, formerly Shemya Air Force Base, is a United States Air Force military airport located on the island of Shemya, in the Alaskan Aleutian Islands. Eareckson Air Station is located on the western tip of Alaska's Aleutian Islands near the larger island of Attu and is located approximately 1500 miles southwest of Anchorage. The airport lies on the south side of the 2-mile by 4-mile island and is 98 feet above mean sea level.

    Shemya Island has been the scene of two major earthquakes. The Rat Islands earthquake, measuring 8.7 on the moment magnitude scale, occurred on February 3rd, 1965. It was followed by severe aftershocks and a tsunami, but damage was limited to cracks in the taxiways. The Near Islands earthquake, measuring 7.6 (surface wave magnitude), occurred on February 1st, 1975. A high degree of damage occurred to the runways and hangars and communications were disrupted for a short time.
