No tsunami alert from Monday’s earthquake

Shortly before 6 a.m. Monday, a magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit off Prince of Wales Island, about 70 miles southwest of Craig.

According to the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center, the epicenter was at a depth of about 6 miles. The earthquake did not trigger any tsunami alerts.

Monday’s smaller earthquake follows close on the heels of a much larger magnitude 7.5 temblor that hit early in the morning on Jan. 5. That earthquake did lead to tsunami alerts throughout Southeast Alaska, and evacuations on Prince of Wales Island and Sitka.
