Large Alaska earthquake strongly felt in Whitehorse
Friday, July 25, 2014, 11:55 AM - Two earthquakes rattled southeastern Alaska early Friday resulting in weak or light shaking around Juneau.
The U. S. Geological Survey recorded a magnitude 5.9 quake at 2:54 a.m. and a 4.7 quake at 3:19 a.m. about 80 kilometres west of Gustavus, The Associated Press reports.
There was no tsunami threat and officials say there have been no reports of damage.
Still, it was strong enough for residents in Whitehorse to feel the shaking.
An earthquake report on Natural Resources Canada's website said the quake was felt in Whitehorse and surrounding areas.
Some residents took to Twitter to report the early morning wake up call from Mother Nature.
Was that another early wake up call from mother nature in the form of an earthquake? #Whitehorse— Tim Kucharuk (@TimKucharuk) July 25, 2014
