According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), minutes ago a 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska, 61 miles east of Sandpoint, Aleutians East, Alaska, USA at a shallow depth of 10km.

Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

Several towns and cities close to the epicenter of the quake most likely felt a weak shaking. The towns of Perryville, Sandpoint, Chignik Lake, Chignik Lagoon and Port Heiden are some of the cities where the quake was most likely felt.
