7.1-magnitude earthquake hits Alaska – CNN

The USGS reported that there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage, but the agency’s “Did You Feel It?” map shows strong shaking could be felt near Anchorage.

The National Weather Service said there was no tsunami threat from the quake because of how deep it struck.

Two smaller earthquakes — a 4.0 and a 3.2 — struck within 30 minutes after the first one.
