From what I think I remember reading some years ago, Alaska's fault types make it possible for 10+ magnitude quakes there while California's are supposedly limited to under 9 or 8.5 or some lower number. Not that it would matter, IMHO, at that magnitude.

Just about all the faults here are subductions.... Thats why the Alaskan Range still growing.....Denali does about 3 centimeter an year.
