You might have felt a little bit of shaking Wednesday afternoon. Seismographs at the Alaska Earthquake Information Center recorded a 4.2 magnitude quake at 1:40 p.m in Kodiak.

Natasha Ruppert is a seismologist at the AEIC and said epicenter was about 56 miles northeast of the city.

She said no damage was reported and she doesn’t expect any because the quake was generated quite a ways offshore. She said each quake is monitored for 24 hours after it occurs for further seismic activity and tsunami potential. She said she does not expect an increase in wave size.
