Tsunami Warning for Hawaii, Canceled in Alaska

Posted: Updated:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A tsunami warning for southeast Alaska has been canceled, while a warning remains in effect for Hawaii.

The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says a tsunami advisory also remains in effect for British Columbia, northern California and southern Oregon.

The alerts came after the U.S. Geological Survey said the 7.7-magnitude earthquake hit in Canada's Queen Charlotte Islands area Saturday night.

A small tsunami was barely noticeable in Craig, Alaska, where a four-inch wave was recorded.
