The quake was centered 60 miles, or 98 kilometers, south-southeast, of Perryville, Alaska. It is considered shallow at about 10 kilometers deep.
"Anything below 70 kilometers is considered a shallow quake. That is important, because shallow earthquakes often cause the most damage, compared to the ones that are deeper, regardless of the strength," CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar noted.
It is worth noting that quakes between magnitudes 7.6 to 7.8 have the potential to produce destructive tsunamis.
As of now, all tsunami warnings and advisories were canceled.
