Northwest Alaska Quakes Crack Eskimo Village

Geologists are stumped as to why a remote and historically quake-free village in northwestern Alaska has been rattled since mid-April by an ongoing swarm of moderate earthquakes.

Walls of buildings in the Inupiat Eskimo community of Noatak have sustained cracks from the five quakes of magnitude 5.7 during that period, along with hundreds of aftershocks.

Alaskan seismologist Natasha Ruppert says there are no known active faults in the area.

Other than rattled nerves, there have been no reports of injuries from the shaking.
