Southeast Alaska rattles a bit, with 3.4 mg temblor off of Craig, Alaska

Another little rattle along the North Pacific fault line was recorded today as the USGS noted a 3.2 magnitude earthquake, with the epicentre located 127 kilometres South-Southwest of Craig, Alaska, some 240 kilometres to the West of Prince Rupert.

The seismic shift was recorded at  16 minutes after midnight BC time and had a depth of 3.5 kilometres, it did not result in any form of Tsunami warning and generally was not noticed in any community on the Southeast Alaskan coast.

It is the latest of mild to moderate temblors to be recorded in recent months, you can review some of the background to those from our archive page here.
