A large earthquake struck off Alaska on Monday morning, but it was not strong enough to generate a tsunami threat for Hawaii, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
The quake, which measured at an initial magnitude of 6.6, was located near the Adak, in the Aleutian Islands, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake was downgraded to a magnitude of 6.4.
The quake struck around 7 a.m. Hawaii time.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
