Aftershocks continue to shake Alaska

Posted: Tuesday, November 05, 2002

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Moderate aftershocks from Sunday's big earthquake continued to rattle Alaska late Monday and early Tuesday.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center in Fairbanks said a magnitude 4.9 quake occurred at 10:50 p.m. Monday. Another quake, with a magnitude of 4.2, occurred at 3:23 a.m. Tuesday. That was followed by a magnitude 4.4 quake at 5:34 a.m. and a 5.1 quake at 8:22 a.m.

All of the quakes were centered 50-60 miles south of Delta Junction. The stronger quakes were felt as far as Anchorage.

There were no reports of any damage or injuries from these latest quakes -- all aftershocks from the magnitude 7.9 earthquake that rocked the state Sunday afternoon.
