Tsunami warnings have been issued for South Alaska, the Alaskan Peninsula and the Aleutian Islands following a powerful 8.2 earthquake.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) says the earthquake hit 91 kilometers southeast of the town of Perryville late on Wednesday.

The National Tsunami Warning Center (NTWC) issued warnings for southern parts, the Peninsula, and Pacific coastal areas from Hinchinbrook Entrance to Unimak Pass and was evaluating the level of tsunami danger for other U.S. and Canadian Pacific coastal areas.

Based on early reports, the quake was felt in large parts of Alaska, but did not cause any major damage or injuries
