No tsunami watch from magnitude 6.1 Alaska quake
Anchorage: An earthquake of 6.1 magnitude rocked a portion of Alaska`s eastern Aleutian Islands on Saturday, but no tsunami warning was anticipated and there were no reports of damage, officials said.
The earthquake was centered about 80 kilometres south-west of Sand Point, a fishing community with nearly 1,000 residents, said the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska.
"We really don`t expect any damage," said James Waddell, a physical scientist with the center. "I`m sure that the locals felt it, but that`s kind of the extent of it."
