The last quake hit Alaska in November 2018, damaging the US Joint Base Elmendorf–Richardson in Anchorage.
The US Geological Survey (USGS) reported that a magnitude 5.1 quake has struck Alaska, near Point MacKenzie. The epicentre was located 15 kilometres north-west of Anchorage and at a depth of 33.4 kilometres, according to the USGS. There are no reports of damage or casualties.
The US Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, which is located nearby, experienced a powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake on 30 November 2018. Several buildings were damaged, but there were no reports of casualties. F-22 fighter jets stationed at the base were also unscathed.
Anchorage itself was also affected by the quake, which had an epicentre only 14 kilometres away from the city. Several buildings, roads and powerlines were damaged due to the earthquake, but no deaths have been reported.
Early morning earthquake strikes East Bay for second day in a rowThe Northridge earthquake that hit 25 years ago offered alarming evidence of how vulnerable many types of buildings are to collapse from major shaking.
Since then, some cities have taken significant steps to make those buildings safer by requiring costly retrofitting aimed at protecting those inside and preserving the housing supply.
But many others have ignored the seismic threat. And that has created an uneven landscape that in the coming years will leave some cities significantly better prepared to withstand a big quake than others.
Other than hospitals, state government has generally not set any mandatory rules for earthquake retrofits, and that has left it up to city and county governments to make decisions about seismic risks.
And because the public generally doesn’t keep tabs on municipal retrofit laws, many could be in the dark about which cities might be more dangerous than others in an earthquake.
And that’s unlikely to change — until a big earthquake hits.
About 25 minutes ago here in Chile there was an earthquake that was very strange, relatively "soft", but very long in its duration. Some of the first videos of this moment.
There have been no reports on casualties or damage so far, the Pacific Tsunami Center said Sunday.
Seismologists have registered the epicenter at 01:32 UTC 29 kilometers (18 miles) away from the city of Coquimbo at an approximate depth of 54 kilometers (33 miles).
According to the data of the US Geological Survey, the tremor's magnitude was 6.7 while it was detected 15 kilometers (9 miles) away from the city of Coquimbo at a depth of 53 kilometers (32 miles).
There has been no tsunami warning issued so far. Chile is located within the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire with 90 percent of the world's earthquakes occurring in this area. Chile also contains a large number of volcanoes but they are not as active as the volcanoes in the western Pacific.
In 2015, the southern part of the country was affected by the eruption of Calbuco Volcano. The volcano's crater sent a plume of ash and smoke several miles high into the sky, prompting the mass evacuation from the area within a 20-kilometer (12-mile) radius.
An 8.8-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami in 2010 killed 525 people and left 26 missing, according to media reports.
