PALMER (AP) -- A light earthquake rattled residents on Kodiak Island early Tuesday, but there were no reports of any damage or injuries.

The Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 4.4. It occurred at 3:39 a.m., and was centered 110 miles south of the city of Kodiak.

The quake was not strong enough to generate a tsunami, seismologists said.

That was the second earthquake in the region in as many days. A temblor with a magnitude of 4.7 was reported shortly after noon Monday, and was centered about 60 miles southwest of Kodiak city.
