A magnitude 4.4 aftershock hit the southcentral area Monday morning, one of the largest in recent weeks. A seismologist with the Alaska Earthquake Center says it's the strongest aftershock since a M4.5 on Jan. 22.

According to the Alaska Earthquake Center, the quake, which hit at 8:02 a.m. Alaska time, was centered 12 miles Northwest of Elmendorf Air Force Base, roughly inland from the end of Knik-Goose Bay, near Goose Creek.

The shaker's epicenter was 25 miles deep.
