(CNN)A 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck Alaska early Sunday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake's epicenter hit near Cook Inlet, 162 miles southwest of Anchorage. It was about 50 miles deep.

...................

The National Weather Service said there was no tsunami threat from the quake because of how deep it struck.

Two smaller earthquakes -- a 4.0 and a 3.2 -- struck within 30 minutes after the first one.

No, WE didn't feel it here in Fairbanks, but Alaska Dispatch News said it was felt here.  Actually it centered about 400 miles south of us. I know a lot of comments were saying this wasn't anything compared with  the big one back in '64. A few years ago we had a 7.9  tremor that was felt strongly in the Anchorage area. We were down there at the time for an elder meeting Tom was attending. That was the most shaking we had ever felt. It happened just as we were getting ready to eat and our granddaughter's husband was saying the prayer. Afterward we commented  that he must have said an earth shaking prayer or maybe Jehovah had given the brothers some earth shaking news! :eek:

     I heard about it on this morning news. While they said no one was hurt by the quake, they showed pictures in Anchorage

of minor damage such as boxes of product knocked off of grocery shelves. Glad to hear no one was hurt.

We had a 6.3 earthquake last night in Southern Spain and Northern Morocco. There was one mortal victim (a 12 yo boy who had a heart attack due to panic) but all the other victims only had small cuts and minor injuries. No buildings collapsed, although cracks appeared on many walls. We are not used to earthquakes and are not prepared for them in the least.

It was not felt at all here in Madrid.
