Alaska is experiencing more earthquakes than normal this month, according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.
In the past two weeks, the Alaska Earthquake Center has detected nearly 2,500 quakes in the state. They say that’s about 1,000 more than normal.
In Southeast, they’ve counted more than 800 aftershocks following the two large earthquakes in southwestern Canada last week.
Seismologists are also keeping a close eye on a cluster of earthquakes near Adak.
Residents reported feeling strong shaking after a 6.2 magnitude earthquake shook the area Monday. Researchers say this isn’t a typical place to see larger quakes and the area is still very active. They’ve counted nearly 200 quakes in this part of the Aleutians in the last 48 hours.
