FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Two small earthquakes have hit Alaska, one on the state's northern end and another in the south.


The Alaska Earthquake Center says a magnitude 3.6 earthquake struck a spot 64.3 miles (103.8 kilometers) northeast of Arctic Village, a community of about 150 people, at 10:02 p.m. Sunday Alaska time. The earthquake had a depth of 2.5 miles (4 kilometers.)

The center says the earthquake was felt in Kenai Peninsula communities and as far as Anchorage.
