7.1 magnitude earthquake strikes off Alaska

Tsunami warning issued for Aleutian Islands


A tsunami warning is in effect for parts of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake was recorded in the ocean.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake struck in the waters at about 6:55 a.m. ET, and there are no initial reports of injuries or damage.

The tsunami warning is in effect for coastal areas of Alaska from Unimak Pass to Amchitka Pass.
The areas are very remote and not heavily populated, according to Jessica Sigala, a geophysicist with the USGS in Golden, Colo.

Reuters reported that The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it did not see a threat of a widespread destructive tsunami.

The quake struck 107 miles southeast of Atka, Alaska, at a depth of 22.1 miles.
