No tsunami is expected in the Aleutians, after a large earthquake near Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. The National Tsunami Warning Center briefly issued a tsunami advisory Monday for the western Aleutian Islands.

 

“There was a magnitude 6.5 [earthquake Monday] morning and this was a magnitude 7.8," said tsunami science warning officer Paul Huang. "In theory, we don't know when the next one will come. It could be a few minutes from now. It could be another 100 years.”
