ANCHORAGE, Ala. -- A tsunami warning has been triggered in Alaska following a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, but there is no threat to Oregon or Washington at this time, officials said.
The warning applies to Cook Inlet and the southern Kenai Peninsula.
Officials said the earthquake, and its aftershocks, struck near Anchorage at about 9:30 a.m. with a 17 mile depth.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) will continue to evaluate the situation and will issue additional watches and warnings if conditions change.
Oregon saw a small 4.2 magnitude earthquake on the Blanco Fracture Zone at 7:53 a.m. near other recent seismic activity off the Oregon Coast.
