A magnitude 3.3 earthquake near Anchor Point, Kenai Peninsula County, Alaska, USA, was reported only 8 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 45 miles beneath the epicenter early morning on Monday 11 January 2021 at 5:34 am local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.3 earthquake as well.

In Nanwalek (pop. 250, 32 miles away), Port Graham (pop. 180, 35 miles away), Seldovia (pop. 280, 38 miles away), Anchor Point (pop. 1,900, 39 miles away), Seldovia Village (pop. 170, 40 miles away), Diamond Ridge (pop. 1,200, 45 miles away), Nikolaevsk (pop. 320, 47 miles away), and Happy Valley (pop. 590, 48 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
