JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Officials have canceled a tsunami warning for parts of southern Alaska and coastal Canada.
The Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says a tsunami was generated by a strong, 7.5 magnitude earthquake, but the waves don't pose a threat to the areas.
The center says some areas are seeing small sea level changes, but there will be no widespread destructive wave.
The quake struck about 60 miles west of Craig, Alaska. The police chief in Craig says houses shook, but there were no reports of injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was followed by six aftershocks. The strongest registered a 5.1 and came nearly four hours after the initial quake.
