Moments ago a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska, 23 mi southwest of Kalifornsky, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska at a depth of 69.3km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quakes might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Based on preliminary data the earthquake did not cause any significant damage and was most likely not felt by a lot of people. Very weak shaking was most likely felt in Munina (pop. 880) located 12 miles from the epicenter, Cohoe (pop. 1,400) 19 miles away, Kalifornsky (pop. 7,900) 21 miles away, Kenai (pop. 7,700) 29 miles away, Anchor Point (pop. 1,900) 30 miles away, Soldotna (pop. 4,500) 30 miles away, Homer (pop. 5,500) 40 miles away, and Sterling (pop. 5,600) 41 miles away.
