Tsunami generate after Alaska earthquake

An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck 106.7 km south of Sand Point, Alaska overnight.

The earthquake occurred at 10:48 pm local time and was at a depth of 9 km.

As a result of the earthquake, the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer Alaska issued a tsunami advisory for south Alaska and the Alaska Peninsula Pacific coasts from Chignik Bay, Alaska to Unimak Pass, Alaska.

The earthquake generates a tsunami of half a foot in King Cove, Alaska and Sand Point, Alaska.

The advisory has since ended. There was no threat to other US and Canadian Pacific coasts in North America.
