Magnitude 6.5 earthquake strikes central Alaska
KAVIK RIVER CAMP, Alaska – A magnitude 6.five earthquake has hit central Alaska.
The U.S. Geological Survey says that at 6:58 a.m. Sunday the earthquake struck a space 41.eight miles (67 kilometers) east of Kavik River Camp and 342.nine miles (551 kilometers) northeast of Fairbanks, the state’s second-biggest town.
The survey says the earthquake has a intensity of about four-tenths of a mile (zero.6 kilometers.)
In January, an impressive undersea earthquake despatched Alaskans fumbling for suitcases and racing to evacuation facilities in the midst of the night time after a mobile phone alert warned a tsunami may hit communities alongside the state’s southern coast and portions of British Columbia. The magnitude 7.nine quake within the Gulf of Alaska brought on the alert.
