Alaska officials canceled a tsunami warning for the Aleutian Islands Friday morning after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake was recorded.
The U.S. Geological Service reported that an earthquake hit at 6:55 a.m. EDT at a depth of 6.2 miles off the coast of Alaska. A tsunami warning was issued after the earthquake, though the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it didn't believe a widespread tsunami was likely after the quake.
The earthquake hit about 27 miles from the Amukta Island and 125 miles from Atka, a major commercial fishing location.
According to the geological service, there are about 15 earthquakes of a 7.0 magnitude or higher in the U.S. each year. The largest ever earthquake in Alaska was a 9.2 magnitude in 1964.
There have been no reported injuries or damage from the earthquake.
