      One day after a notable undersea quake struck south of Alaska, an inland temblor shook Central Alaska this afternoon.

      This quake ocurred at 1:43 p.m. Anchorage time (2:43 p.m. Vancouver time) today (June 19).

      Both the U.S. Geological Survey and the Alaska Earthquake Center measured it as a 4.4-magnitude quake.

      At a shallow depth of only eight kilometres (five miles), the epicentre was located 42 kilometres (26 miles) west of Ferry, Alaska; 143 kilometres (89 miles) southwest of Fairbanks, Alaska; and 852 kilometres (528 miles) northwest of Whitehorse, Yukon.

      Yesterday (June 18), a 5.3-magnitude offshore quake struck south of the Alaska coastline.
