In Sitka, the earth moved under our feet in January -- like everywhere else in Southeast -- but one couple in particular will probably be choosing their campsites pretty carefully from now on. 2013 started with an earthquake, and the wild ride never quite ended. An amazing fishing season plus a surge in industrial activity pushed the regional economy to new highs, but not everyone cashed in -- especially those affected by federal budget cuts. Here's a look back at some of the top local news stories of the year.
Two people are safe after a massive landslide destroyed the cabin they were camping in Sunday morning (5-12-13) near Sitka. An air taxi pilot rescued the pair from a debris field estimated to be 20 feet deep. All their belongings were buried in the slide. Their dog remains missing.
