A magnitude-6.9 earthquake shook the Aleutian Islands Sunday evening, but generated no Pacific-wide tsunami.
The quake was centered 47 miles east-southeast of Yunaska Island, Alaska, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
It struck at 6:50 p.m. Hawaii time.
Shortly afterward, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a statement that no tsunami was expected in Hawaii “based on all available data.”
In April 1946, the Aleutians were the epicenter of a magnitude-8.1 earthquake that generated a tsunami that killed 159 people in Hawaii.
