WASHINGTON - A 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck on Friday in the Aleutian Islands off Alaska, the U.S. Geological Survey reported, prompting a tsunami warning for a portion of Alaska's coast.

The warning was posted for coastal areas from Unimak Pass, 80 miles (128 km) northeast of Dutch Harbor, to Amchitka Pass, 125 miles (201 km) west of Adak.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it did not see a threat of a widespread destructive tsunami from the quake, which was centered in the Pacific Ocean, 107 miles (172 km) southeast of Atka, Alaska.

The quake, which struck at 10:55 GMT, was 22.1 miles (35 km) deep, the USGS said.
