Posted: Thursday, October 12, 2000

PALMER (AP) -- A light earthquake shook the Kodiak area early Thursday, but there were no reports of any damage or injuries.

The quake had a magnitude of 4.6 and occurred at 9:30 a.m., said Bruce Turner, a seismologist with the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center.

It was centered 110 miles south of the city of Kodiak.

No one called in any felt reports and the temblor wasn't strong enough to generate a tsunami, Turner said.
