No tsunami threat from Alaska quake

An earthquake this morning off of Alaska’s Aleutian islands poses no tsunami threat to Hawaii, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said today.

The quake hit about six miles below the Fox islands, part of the Aleutian chain, at 9:48 a.m. Hawaii time.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center measured the magnitude of the earthquake at 6.2, said Dailin Wang, an oceanographer at the center.

But preliminary reports from the U.S. Geological Survey measured the quake at 5.8 magnitude, Wang said.
