ANCHORAGE - A moderate earthquake rattled Alaska's Cook Inlet but there have been no reports of damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey rated the quake at magnitude 6.1 and the Alaska Earthquake Information Center gave it a preliminary magnitude of 5.7.

No tsunami warning was generated by the event.

The earthquake was centered about 45 miles southwest of Homer.
