Seismologists report earthquakes in Alaska
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Seismologists are reporting two aftershocks of a strong earthquake that rattled Alaska’s sparsely populated western Aleutian Islands.
There are no immediate reports the lights quakes that occurred at 7:28 a.m. Thursday and 11:16 p.m. Wednesday were felt or caused damage.
The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says the 4.5 and 4.3 magnitude quakes are aftershocks of the 6.4 earthquake that struck the area Wednesday afternoon. That quake was felt in the communities of Adak and Atka, more than 1,000 miles from Anchorage.
The three earthquakes were centered 64 to 75 miles southwest of Adak.
