Hawaii Hit By Tsunami After Canada Earthquake

Hawaii was hit by a tsunami on Saturday night.

The authorities order at least 100,000 people in the island state to move to higher ground.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the first tsunami wave was three feet high and less forceful than expected.

The tsunami hit with little warning and an alert, issued at short notice due to initial confusion among scientists about the quake’s undersea epicenter, caused massive traffic congestion as motorists made a mass exodus from low-lying areas.

The tsunami center cautioned that wave height could not be predicted and that the first wave “may not be the largest and all shores are at risk no matter which direction they face”.
