The Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says the danger of a tsunami hitting the coast of Alaska has passed. Much of the state had been on alert following the devastating 8.9 earthquake that struck Japan last week. Kodiak Island remained on advisory until 5 p.m. Saturday. Now the state’s tsunami warning center’s program manager Cindi Preller says there’s little danger.

— tsunami 1 :15 “Even a magnitude 7 in Japan … we will not be affected.”

Alaska’s entire coastline has been downgraded and there are no watches, warning or advisories in effect.
