Another strong quake rattles Alaska's Aleutian Islands

Advertiser Staff

Another relatively strong earthquake shook a portion of the Aleutian Islands in Alaska about 9:25 p.m. Thursday night Hawai'i time.

The epicenter of the 6.1-magnitude quake was about 109 miles west-southwest of Adak island, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injury and no Pacific-wide tsunami advisory was issued.

The same area was rocked by a 7.2-magnitude earthquake on Wednesday.
