Strong Earthquake: Tsunami Warning Canceled For Alaska, Canada

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Officials have canceled a tsunami warning for parts of southern Alaska and coastal Canada.

The Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says a tsunami was generated by a strong 7.5-magnitude earthquake, but the waves don't pose a threat to the areas.

The center says some areas are seeing small sea level changes, but there will be no widespread destructive wave that had earlier been warned about.

The warning area included coastal areas from Cape Fairweather, Alaska, to the north tip of Vancouver Island, Canada. The area extended for more than 700 miles.
