No Northern Hemisphere Danger of Tsunami After S. Pacific Earthquake
PALMER, Alaska (AP) — The National Weather Service says there is no threat of a tsunami in Hawaii, Alaska or the U.S. West Coast after a powerful earthquake struck in the South Pacific. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says some areas of the West Coast may see changes in sea levels but it would not be damaging. The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-8.0 undersea quake struck near the Solomon Islands on Wednesday local time. A small tsunami damaged dozens of homes there.
