An earthquake shook objects from shelves in southeastern Alaska and adjacent sections of Canada, geologists said. The quake, which measured 5.3 on the Richter scale, was centered just southeast of Haines, Alaska, Bob Horner, a seismologist with the Geological Survey of Canada, said in a telephone interview from the Pacific Geoscience Centre in Sidney, British Columbia. He said that in Alaska, the tremor was felt in Haines, Skagway and Juneau, and that residents of Whitehorse, Yukon, and Atlin in British Columbia also felt it. No injuries or serious property damage were reported.
