There are no warnings for Tsunami dangers. The earthquake was felt for about a minute long, currently there are no reports of damage or injury.
"It was strongly felt in Atka, an Aleut community of 64 people, and the larger Aleutian town of Adak, where 320 people live. The quake was followed by multiple aftershocks, including one measuring magnitude 5.4." - Reported be ABC News' Rachel D'oro
The islands' region is a place of beauty, wildlife, birds, beaches, active volcanoes and even a thermal hot spring. Some of the villages are Akutan, Cold Bay, False Pass, King Cove and Sand Point and have small populations.
Adak has a military history between the Japanese and U.S. "It became a city in 2001 and today retains its military appearance." also from ABC News by Rachel D'oro
