Small earthquakes rattle northern Alaska
The earthquakes, several dozen miles northeast of the 500-strong community of Noatak, were recorded early on Saturday morning.
They ranged in magnitude from 4.0 to 5.5.
Officials with the Alaska Earthquake Information Center said the earthquakes are unusual, because the region isnt a seismically active part of Alaska.
The center said it did not receive any reports of major structural damage from the affected area, other than cracks in building walls. No injuries or casualties were reported.
