Light earthquake felt in Anchorage

Posted: Tuesday, October 29, 2002

PALMER, Alaska (AP) -- A light earthquake, with a preliminary magnitude of 4.4, was felt in Anchorage Monday night, but there were no reports of damage or injuries.

The quake hit at 11:13 p.m., and was centered about 90 miles north of Anchorage and 30 miles northwest of Talkeetna, Michael Burgy of the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer said.

''A slight rumbling was felt,'' Burgy said.

The quake followed a strong quake last Wednesday, which measured 6.7 and shook residents from Anchorage to Fairbanks, 85 miles north of the epicenter.
