PALMER, Alaska — Strong aftershocks continued to follow a magnitude 6.4 earthquake that struck a remote area of Alaska's Aleutian Islands on Friday.

Earthquake monitors said there were no immediate reports of injury or damage from any in the series of quakes that began Thursday night and continued Friday afternoon. No tsunami warnings were issued.

An unrelated earthquake with a 4.5 magnitude occurred at 9 a.m. local time Friday morning in the Kodiak Island region about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage.

State seismologist Roger Hansen, director of the Alaska Earthquake Information Center, says the quake was nearly 1,000 miles (1,610 kilometers) from the other earthquakes. It was felt in Anchorage, Kodiak and Homer, but there were no immediate reports of damage.
