All tsunami advisories canceled after Alaska quake

By MARK THIESSEN

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- All tsunami advisories have been canceled following a magnitude-7.9 earthquake in Alaska's Aleutian Islands.
The National Tsunami Warning Center canceled the last remaining advisory late Monday afternoon. At one point, areas stretching from Attu to Unimak Pass were under a tsunami warning or advisory, but the largest reported wave was about 7 inches.
The advisory area included Unalaska, a community of about 4,000 people and home to Dutch Harbor, one of the nation's largest fishing ports.
The quake struck Monday afternoon and was widely felt in sparsely populated villages in an area about 1,400 miles southwest of Anchorage.
The earthquake was initially measured at magnitude 8.0. But scientists have downgraded that now to 7.9 after having time to review the data.
