A magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook a wide swath of Alaska's southern coast, including the city of Anchorage, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The earthquake, initially listed as magnitude 5.7, struck at 4:42 p.m. Monday at a spot 44 kilometers (27 miles) off the coast at a depth of 53 kilometers (33 miles).

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a watch or warning after the earthquake hit.

Local media reported that residents of Anchorage, the state's largest city, said the earthquake was felt strongly for several seconds and caused items to fall from shelves, but no casualties or significant damage have been reported thus far. EFE
