Magnitude 4.5 Quake 67 Miles West of Ninilchik
The Alaska Earthquake Center says there was a magnitude 4.5 earthquake felt on the Kenai Peninsula at 11:31 this morning. It was centered 67 miles West of Ninilchik and occurred 120 miles beneath the earth’s surface.
There are no reports of damage from the quake and there are no warnings about volcanic activity or a tsunami.
A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck 30 miles west of Homer on January 24th. Seismologists say the quake today is a separate event not an aftershock related to the larger quake more than a week ago.
