Major Quake Shakes Aleutian Islands Off Alaskan Coast

Alaska is on the search radar after a 7.1 earthquake registered off its coast. The region—centered in the Aleutian Islands about 120 miles from Atka, Alaska—is sparsely populated, and there are no reports of extensive damage or injuries. This quake follows last week’s 5.8 East Coast earthquake centered in central Virginia but felt as far north as Philadelphia and New York City.
