A 5.4 magnitude earthquake struck near Anchorage, Alaska, on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The quake was 7 miles (11 km) southwest of Point MacKenzie and 25 miles deep.

A powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Anchorage, a city of 300,000 people, in November, buckling roads, disrupting phone service and causing minor damage.
