FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Two small earthquakes have hit Alaska, one on the state's northern end and another in the south.

The Alaska Earthquake Center says a magnitude 3.2 earthquake struck a spot 64.3 miles (103.8 kilometers) northeast of Arctic Village, a community of about 150 people, at 10:02 p.m. Sunday Alaska time. The earthquake had a depth of 2.5 miles (4 kilometers.)

Earlier Sunday, a magnitude 4.4 earthquake has hit southern Alaska, but there are no reports of damage.

The center says the earthquake struck the Cook inlet region at 8:32 p.m. Sunday Alaska time and had an epicenter about 34 miles (54 kilometers) east of Pedro Bay. The center says the earthquake had a depth of about 66 miles (105 kilometers).

The center says the earthquake was felt in Kenai Peninsula communities and as far as Anchorage.
