A Tsunami warning went into effect in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Alaska, as seen in footage from a residential street in the town of Kodiak, Alaska at 00:05 local time (08:05 GMT).
The tsunami warning was sent out after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred 99 kilometers (61 miles) outside Perryville, Alaska, with alarms ringing in 10 Alaskan towns over the course of two hours.
All advisories and warnings related to a magnitude-7.8 earthquake late Tuesday night were dropped on Wednesday morning.
«We've canceled the advisories because it doesn't look like it's becoming a large wave,» said national Tsunami Warning Center Director Dr. James Gridley. «We are monitoring everything within the warning area to determine exactly what we should do in our next message.»
