At 8:01 a.m. Alaska time Thursday, a magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck far eastern Russia.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center initially issued a tsunami warning for areas within a 186 miles radius of the quake. After the initial warning, officials found no sign of a dangerous tsunami and expired the warning. 

The quake occurred in a remote location on the tip of the Aleutian Island chain, just 6 miles deep and 51 miles west of Nikol'skoye, Russia. The location is roughly 1,680 miles west of Anchorage.

Multiple magnitude 5 aftershocks have occurred since the initial magnitude 7.4 earthquake. 

Officials at Russia's local emergency ministry said no damage was reported following the earthquake.
