Mar. 31, 2018
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A light earthquake has been reported afternoon in the Gulf of Alaska.
The Alaska Earthquake Center says the magnitude 4.3 quake Friday afternoon was centered about 160 miles (255 kilometers) southeast of Kodiak Island.
It was located at a depth of about 6 miles (10 kilometers). There are no reports of it being felt or causing damage.
The earthquake center said it was an aftershock of the Jan. 23 magnitude 7.9 earthquake that was widely felt throughout south-central Alaska and briefly prompted a tsunami warning.
Another light earthquake earlier Friday shook the Cook Inlet region of southern Alaska, not far from Anchorage.
The earthquake with a magnitude of 4.1 was centered about 23 miles (37 kilometers) north of Anchorage. The quake had a depth of about 29 miles (47 kilometers).
