    Folk on that coastline are urged by authorities to seek higher ground as there is a significant possible risk.

    Here is a map of the affected areas and timelines for when the wave may hit .

    It is the middle of the night in the affected regions. Folk who know folk who live on the coast there, might want to give them a call and wake them up. Perhaps they have emergency alarms in those places, but they might not.

    The wave would have reached Alaska already, but no reports. It looks like the wave is propagating in a southeasterly direction towards the Queen Charlotte Islands, North Vancouver Island then southerly towards Wash State, Oregon and California.

    There was an 8.2 (ish) earthquake off the coast of Alaska on Tuesday bluestflame, and this appears to be generating a Tsunami wave that may hit the West coastline of the United States and Canada, and there is a warning for folk in the areas affected to reach higher ground. It is very early morning there though, so there will be a lot of people still asleep.

    Kodiak Police Department gave a video warning on their face book page an hour ago. Get to a height of 100 feet or above, they are saying.

    Here is a link to that fb page.

    ADD ON: Folk talking on the above fb page 7 minutes ago,are talking about the water leaving the Kodiak Bay area (which indicates it could be forming a Tsunami)

    Just an initial guess ... not liking it. There are reports that the channel in Kodiak has emptied out!! This was over a very long interval. It suggets to me that the wave (and the ocean) is propagating south sucking the ocean away from Alaska. It W I L L return! Pray... can't image a more frightening thing than a big wave in the dark!

    Someone who has a little brother in Kodiak, was sent a video to her that he filmed. They are in an evacuation center, which is the gym at the local school. They are fine at the mo.

    Warnings cancelled along the U.S., Canada coast......

    ......but still WARNING in ALASKA and BRITISH COLUMBIA.

    Keep an eye on what that wave is doing, heading towards the coast of Alaska. Hopefully, it dies out, before hitting.
