ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A moderate earthquake shook the region northwest of Kodiak but there are no immediate reports of any damages.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.9 quake struck at 11 p.m. Friday and was centered in a remote area about 75 miles northwest of Kodiak or 240 miles southwest of Anchorage.
The Kodiak Police Department says there were no reports of damage or other problems early Saturday.
The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says the quake, which was about 50 miles underground, was widely felt. Officials say there was no danger of a tsunami.
A quake of this size has the capacity to cause considerable damage under some circumstances.
