Tsunami watch issued for Hawaii after major Alaska quake

Why was Squamish not included in tsunami alert?

Reports on social media suggest the tremors were felt as far south as Seatle and Vancouver.

People in the effected areas are told to seek higher ground.

A red tsunami warning has been issued for the west coast of the United States after a huge 8.2-magnitude natural disaster struck at a shallow depth off the coast of Alaska. "Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this natural disaster that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter", the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

A tsunami alert has been issued for the Pacific Ocean, including all of the USA west coast.


Shaun Dyess said: "I'm here in Anchorage, Alaska".

Earlier today a 6.0-magnitude quake has struck off Java in Indonesia.

Officials in Japan are monitoring the situation but have not yet issued any tsunami warnings.
