The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a magnitude-4.3 earthquake hit central Alaska on Saturday night.

The agency says the quake’s epicenter is 61 miles west of the town of Talkeetna, which has an estimated population of 900, and 97 miles northwest of Anchorage, the state’s largest city.

There are no reports of damage from the quake, which struck at 9:21 p.m. Alaska time.

The agency says the earthquake is about 60 miles deep.
