Tsunami watch for Hawaii lifted after north Pacific natural disaster

Russia quake

An natural disaster with a magnitude of 7.8 has occurred at approximately 4:59 HST in the vicinity of the Kuril Islands.

The US Geological Survey for its part estimated the strength of the quake at 7.5 magnitude.

"This quake has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami in the source region", it said.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) warned the quake had the potential to generate destructive tsunami waves within 620 miles of the quake's epicenter.

'Safer at Home' initiative does not close essential businesses
That's why issuing a [safer at home] order isn't something I thought we'd have to do, and it's not something I take lightly. Governor Tony Evers is asking Wisconsin residents to stay at home to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

The ministry said area residents would remain in a safe place for now as the threat of a tsunami remained.

The Japan Meteorological Association also said there might be slight tidal changes but said no warnings or even watch advisories had been issued. There were no early reports of casualties. Minor quakes were felt in six prefectures including Hokkaido, Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Tokyo and Nagano.

The last major natural disaster in the north Pacific region was a 9.0 magnitude temblor in the northeast coast of the Tohoku region of Japan's Honshu island in 2011.

The Kuril Island chain is a volcanic archipelago which extends for more than 800 miles from the northeastern tip of Japan to bottom of the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula.
