7.5-magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Alaska

There was a whole lot of shaking going on in Alaska Saturday morning as a 7.5 magnitude earthquake rocked the state.

The quake, followed by 6 aftershocks, did knock some stuff around, but luckily no one was injured.

The tremors did cause some concern for coastal communities in Alaska and Canada after a tsunami warning was issued.

That warning was later cancelled after reports of no damaging waves.

That’s good news because on Friday, a plan to stockpile food and supplies in case of emergency situations in Alaska hit a snag.

Plus a drilling ship that got stuck off the Alaskan coast on Monday is still waiting to be removed.
