Moments ago, a 3.2-magnitude earthquake struck Haines Parish, 73 miles northwest of Juneau, Alaska, USA at a depth of 0km. The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported the quake at magnitude of 3.2 too.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquake might be revised in the next few hours as seismologists review their data. Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Mud Bay (pop. 210) located 22 miles from the epicenter.
