ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says there have been a series of Alaska earthquakes in the Bering Sea.

There was a magnitude-5.3 temblor Saturday morning centered about 6 miles under the Bering Sea. It was about 57 miles southeast of the City of Saint Paul and about 752 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Geophysicist John Bellini says the remote area has seen four earthquakes of various sizes in the last 24 hours.

There have been no reports of the quake being felt or causing any damage or injuries.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says there is no tsunami threat.
