  • A 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck northern Alaska on Aug. 12 2018

It hit an area 41.8 miles east of Kavik River Camp and 342.9 miles northeast of Fairbanks.

According to the agency, the epicenter lay at the depth of 2.8 kilometers and 60.9 km south-west of Elupak and 564.3 km north-east of College with the population of some 13, 000 people. "This is a very significant event that will take us some time to understand", he told the Daily News.

Another large quake has hit the North Slope region just hours after being rattled Sunday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

"That's why at 6.4 this changes how we think about the region", West said.

Strong earthquakes are not uncommon in seismically active Alaska, but they tend to occur in remote, sparsely populated regions where there is little or no damage.

Alyeska said it would conduct follow-up inspections of the pipeline and related facilities. The company says in a tweet that "there are no operational concerns" related to the natural disaster, but the pipeline will be inspected.

A magnitude 6.5 natural disaster has hit central Alaska. The USGS says the natural disaster hit a spot about 340 miles northeast of Fairbanks.

The Alaska Earthquake Center says the earthquakes were felt across the eastern part of the state's North Slope Borough and as far south as metro Fairbanks. The center adds that there are no reports of damage. The magnitude 7.9 quake in the Gulf of Alaska triggered the alert.
