JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Seismologists in Alaska say earthquakes have jolted four different parts of the state in the last 12 hours.

A magnitude-5.9 quake was among several that occurred around the same location early Friday in southeast Alaska. The U.S. Geological Survey says people in Juneau, about 100 miles east, felt light shaking.

An unrelated magnitude-4.3 earthquake was felt in Kodiak. No one reported feeling smaller, unrelated quakes in the Brooks Range region and in north-central Alaska.

There are no immediate reports of damage.

Alaska Earthquake Center seismologist Natasha Ruppert says it's somewhat unusual to have unrelated quakes strong enough to be felt in two parts of the state.

The magnitude-5.9 quake in southeast Alaska was immediately preceded by a magnitude-5.3 foreshock and several aftershocks.

No tsunami is expected.
