There also was no threat of a tsunami from any of the quakes.
The US Geological Survey said the initial 6.7-magnitude temblor struck at 9:56 p.m. local time Saturday and was centered in the Bering Sea about 155 miles (250 kilometers) southwest of Dutch Harbor. The quake hit about 21 miles (34 kilometers) beneath the seabed.
