Strong Quake Rattles Southern Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (January 31, 2013)--The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck at around 1 a.m. Thursday centered in the ocean, about 200 miles south of Alaska’s capital, Juneau.

The Tsunami Warning Center said there is no danger of a tsunami.

The quake was widely felt across the region, according to the Alaska Earthquake Information Center, but there were no immediate reports of any damage.

The center says the quake is an aftershock to a magnitude-7.5 temblor that struck on Jan. 4 and led to a tsunami warning for hundreds of miles along the Alaska and Canadian coasts, which was cancelled after a few hours when no damaging waves were generated.
