ANCHORAGE - Geologists say two small earthquakes have shaken parts of Alaska.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.3-magnitute temblor struck late Saturday about 50 miles southwest of Cantwell. No one reported feeling it on the survey's Web site.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says another quake with a 3.1 magnitude rattled the Cook Inlet area minutes later. The center says it struck about 50 miles north of Mount Redoubt.
