Strong Earthquake Strikes off Alaska Coast

Friday, 29 May 2015 06:27 AM

A strong earthquake has struck in a remote region off the coast of Alaska and officials say there is no tsunami threat or immediate report of damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-6.7 quake struck at 9 p.m. Thursday and was centered in the ocean about 35 miles beneath the seabed and some 400 miles southwest of Anchorage — 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, but there are no immediate reports of damage.

The police dispatch office in Kodiak says that the temblor was felt at the station, but they have had no reports of any problems.

The National Tsunami Warning Center says there is no tsunami danger.
