Two earthquakes rattle remote Alaska

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two moderate earthquakes rattled remote locations in Alaska on Friday, according to the U.S. National Earthquake Center.

A magnitude 5.3 quake struck 13 miles west northwest of the Alaska town of Anchor Point, which is about 200 miles south of Anchorage. About a minute later, a magnitude 5.1 quake occurred about 28 miles southwest of Cantwell, Alaska, which is about 200 miles north of Anchorage.

Magnitude 5 quakes can cause considerable damage, but there were no immediate reports of injury or damage.
