The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck the Alaska Peninsula region early Sunday morning, prompting a tsunami warning for nearby areas that was later withdrawn.
The US Tsunami Warning System has lifted the warning issued for coastal areas of southern Alaska and the Alaska Peninsula. The USGS revised the earthquake’s magnitude to 7.4 from an initial reading, and revised the quake’s depth to 32.6 km (20.3 mi) from an initial 9.3 km.
A few Twitter accounts posted videos of tsunami sirens and strong tremors, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.
