ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Seismologists say a strong earthquake rattled a section of Alaska and Canada's Yukon Territory.

The Alaska Earthquake Center says the 6.0 magnitude quake struck at 3:49 a.m. about 62 miles northwest of Yakutat. There are no immediate reports of damage.

The quake was felt in Yakutat, as well as Whitehorse in the Yukon. Yakutat is a Gulf of Alaska community about 45 miles southwest of the Canada border.
