A tsunami warning was canceled early Friday morning for Alaska's Aleutian Islands following a 7.1 magnitude earthquake recorded in the Pacific Ocean.

Alaska officials said the tsunami warning was issued for coastal areas of Alaska from Unimak Pass to Amchitka Pass, remote and not heavily populated areas.

The earthquake struck at about 6:55 a.m. EDT (1055 GMT), and there were no initial reports of injuries or damage, according to the U.S.Geological Survey.

In Atka, they had a little bump of a wave, but nothing of any kind of a destructive power. Just a wave, said Jeremy Zidek, a spokesman for the Alaska Department of Homeland Security.

The warning was canceled after only a small wave was recorded in the community of Atka, Alaska.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it did not forecast a widespread destructive tsunami from Friday's earthquake.

It's main industry is fishing.

Residents were evacuating to higher ground in Atka but then stopped at the cancellation, Zidek said.

The state emergency response center was staffed early Friday morning.

In June, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 in the same area of the Aleutians also prompted a tsunami warning.
