Kodiak jolted by magnitude 4.6 earthquake Monday evening

Did you feel a jolt last night? At about 8:25 p.m. on Monday, a magnitude 4.6 earthquake hit the northernmost end of Shuyak Island. The quake was at a depth of 7.3 miles and about 50 miles away from the city of Kodiak.

Four hours later, a magnitude 6.8 quake occurred along the Aleutian chain, 44 miles east southeast of Nikolski, at a depth of 13.8 miles.

Fortunately, the recent quakes do not appear to be part of a trend; according to the United States Geological Survey, this is entirely typical earthquake activity for this region of Alaska.
