U.S. National Weather Service cancels tsunami watch for California

(Reuters) - The National Weather Service on Tuesday canceled a tsunami watch it has previously issued for California following a 7.9 magnitude earthquake that had struck the Gulf of Alaska.

“A Tsunami was generated by this event, but does not pose a threat to California,” the service’s San Francisco Bay Area office said on Twitter.
