6.5 magnitude quake off Alaska's Aleutian Islands
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A magnitude 6.5 earthquake has been recorded in waters off Alaska's remote Aleutian Island region, where a 7.0 quake hit just last week.
The Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre said there is no danger of a tsunami from Tuesday afternoon's quake.
The US Geological Survey said the quake was centred about 80 kilometres south-southwest of the tiny community of Atka, Alaska.
According to scientists, earthquakes are very common in the area.
