Tsunami watch for Washington, BC coastline cancelled

By Kara Spencer

A tsunami warning threatening coastal British Columbia and Washington waters was cancelled after an earthquake hit parts of Alaska earlier this morning.

The earthquake struck south of Kodiak, Alaska at 1:31 a.m. on January 23. A tsunami watch was in place for the San Juan islands and all coastal areas of British Columbia, but did not pose a threat to coastal areas of Whatcom County, according to a report from the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Emergency Division.
