A strong earthquake struck a remote region of the Alaska coast with so few people that it was probably felt by more grizzly bears than people.

The Associated Press reported officials as saying there was no tsunami threat or immediate reports of damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey side the magnitude-6.7 quake struck at 11 p.m. Thursday and was centered in the ocean about 35 miles beneath the seabed and some 400 miles southwest of Anchorage. It hit a remote and lightly populated Aleutian Island region.

Officials say the temblor was felt on the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak Island, more than 100 miles away.

The police dispatch office in Kodiak side the quake was felt at the station, but it received no reports of damage.

The National Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami danger.

The USGS said there have been five aftershocks of magnitude-3.0 or greater.
