ANCHORAGE - A small earthquake shook central Alaska on Friday evening.

The Alaska Earthquake Information Center said a magnitude 3.6 temblor struck at 9:46 p.m. about 45 miles southeast of Cantwell and 53 miles southeast of Denali National Park.

The quake followed a magnitude 5.0 earthquake that rattled buildings Wednesday in Anchorage and other communities in Alaska, but didn't result in any damage.

The center said Saturday it has not received any reports of Friday's quake being felt or causing damage.
