Swarm of earthquakes in Alaska puzzles scientists

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A moderate earthquake shook northwest Alaska on Monday, the fifth temblor of the same magnitude since April in an area with otherwise little activity, seismologists said. People there aren't used to earthquakes, and these have some residents worried, said Ashby, who has lived in the community most of his life. "[...] since we are having all this earthquake activity, there must be some active faults in the area," Ruppert said. Since the first of the swarms occurred, seismic sensors have been installed in Noatak and the regional hub town of Kotzebue, 55 miles south.
