Update: Tsunami Warning Includes Washington State and Vancouver, 1/5/2012

Following a large earthquake in Alaska, there's word of a tsunami warning:


The warning area includes coastal areas from about 75 miles southeast of Cordova, Alaska, to the north tip of Vancouver Island, Canada, the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center said. The warning area extends for about 475 miles.
The magnitude 7.5 quake struck at midnight Friday (1 a.m. PST Saturday) and was centered about 60 miles west of Craig, Alaska, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
A tsunami with a "significant widespread inundation of land is expected," the center said in a statement.
The first wave was expected around 1:15 a.m. (2:15 a.m. PST) in Craig, and 2:50 a.m. in Cordova, further to the north.
The center said widespread dangerous coastal flooding is possible.
In addition to the warning, a tsunami advisory is in effect for coastal Alaska from Cape Suckling to 75 miles southeast of Cordova and from the Washington state border to the tip of Vancouver Island.
