What is the longest earthquake on record?

The longest earthquake on record occurred in Alaska (in an area called Prince William Sound) in March of 1964. The earthquake lasted just under 4 minutes long.




Most earthquakes are over very quickly, and they last for less than a minute long. But, many big earthquakes also have aftershocks which can go on for longer periods of time.
