ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A strong earthquake struck Alaska and jolted residents for hundreds of miles, but no damages or injuries were reported.
The Friday quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.4 and was centered about 70 miles east of King Salmon on the Alaska Peninsula, or about 245 miles southwest of Anchorage, said Guy Urban, geophysicist at the West Coast Alaska Tsunami Warning Center.
It originated at a depth of about 25 miles, the center said.
The quake jolted residents of Anchorage, Kodiak and other relatively distant cities.
"It was a good one," said dispatcher Stacy Hazenberg at the Bristol Bay Borough Police Department, based in King Salmon.
However, she said police had received no reports of damage or injuries.
