7.7 Earthquake Off Canada

Whew. Hawaii and Canada both reportedly avoided damage after a magnitude-7.7 earthquake rattled western Canada and sent tsunami waves heading toward the island state. Officials issued a tsunami warning, but residents seem to have escaped the worst Sunday morning—three- to seven-foot waves that could have caused substantial damage. As of 6 a.m. ET, the Honolulu mayor advised people to remain in safe areas until they receive an all clear to return to their homes.
