ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Two sizable earthquakes in the North Pacific shook several communities in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska but there have been no immediate reports of damage.
The Alaska Earthquake Center says a magnitude 6.3 earthquake was recorded Tuesday in the Fox Islands, about 30 miles southeast of the community of Nikolski along Alaska’s Aleutian Island chain.
The quake hit about 7:22 a.m. local time. Thirteen minutes later, a magnitude 5.7 earthquake was recorded about 300 miles southeast of Kodiak.
Both quakes were felt in the Aleutian communities of Nikolski, Unalaska and Akutan.
Neither quake produced a tsunami.
