Officials evaluating 7.5 Russian Federation quake for possible West Coast tsunami threat

Magnitude 7.8 earthquake off Russia's Severo-Kuril Russia earthquake: tsunami warning issued after 7.5 magnitude event

A Magnitude 7.5 natural disaster was detected late Wednesday afternoon local time off the coast of Russia's far-eastern Kuril Islands.

Just last month, a 4.9-magnitude natural disaster slammed Kronotsky Bay on Russia's the Kamchatka Peninsula.

The natural disaster, 218 km (135 miles) south-southeast of the town of Severo-Kurilsk, struck at a depth of 56.7 km (35 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

Seismic waves created false reporting of an quake as close as Kitimat, BC.

Residents in the northern part of Russia's Kuril Islands remain at risk of a tsunami following a 7.5-magnitude quake off the coast, according to information received, but emergency services reported small waves and no casualties or damage.

According to reports, the first tsunami wave is due at 10.42 pm local time and the Hawaiin authorities are trying to determine what threat the tsunami can cause to the island.

The US Geological Survey had alerted that the quake could prompt a tsunami.

A tsunami caution issued by means of the United States government for Hawaii was once rescinded, and officers stated there was once no threat to both the United States or Canadian west coasts. The National Tsunami Warning Center of the United States has said that the risk of this quake is now being analyzed.

The Japan Meteorological Association (JMA) said there may be some tidal changes in parts of the country's coastline but said there was no risk of tsunami damage.

A tsunami watch issued for Hawaii was halted shortly afterward.

Emergency services reported small waves and no casualties or damage after the quake.

The Kuriles are known as the Northern Territories in Japan.
