No injuries reported after 4.6-quake in Alaska

Seismologists say an earthquake that struck in southern Alaska near Anchorage was widely felt in the city and other communities.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says the 4.6-magnitude quake occurred at 7:02 a.m. Wednesday. It struck eight miles south of Anchorage.

The center says there are no immediate reports of significant damage, but some Anchorage residents say items toppled or fell off shelves.

Besides those in Anchorage, residents in a 120-mile swath of southcentral Alaska, from Palmer to Kenai, reported feeling the earthquake to the U.S. Geological Survey.
