A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has struck Alaska and prompted fears of a tsunami in the US state.

The US Geological Survey says the earthquake was centred around seven miles (12km) north of Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage.

The National Tsunami Warning Centre issued a tsunami warning for coastal zones of southern Alaska but it has since been cancelled.

US President Donald Trump said Alaska had been “hit hard by a ‘big one'” and the federal government would “spare no expense” in its response to the earthquake.
