ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Another strong earthquake has rattled a remote and sparsely populated Aleutian Island region off Alaska.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 6.1 temblor struck near Adak at 10:39 p.m. Friday.
Adak is a small, isolated town about 1,200 miles southwest of Anchorage and near where a much stronger, magnitude 7.0 temblor hit earlier Friday.
The Alaska Tsunami Information Centers that like the larger quake, there is no danger of a tsunami from the latest earthquake.
There have been no reports of any serious damage from the earlier quake and a series of aftershocks which followed.
