An earthquake struck in the Anchorage area Tuesday evening.

The quake struck at 8:41 p.m. with a preliminary magnitude of 4.5 revised from an initial 4.6, according to the U.S. Geological Survey and the Alaska Earthquake Center. It was centered 9.5 miles east of Big Lake and struck at a depth of about 26 miles.

The quake was an aftershock of the Nov. 30 7.0 quake that caused damage across the region.

This is the 39th aftershock of magnitude 4.0 or larger we've had and the largest aftershock in 10 days. It was also farther west than most.
