7.7 earthquake strikes Sumatra, Indonesia, according to the US Geological Survey (3)

The National Weather Service is warning that a tsunami created by the deadly Japan earthquake could hit California shoreline areas before mid-day.

It had already begun slamming Hawaii with waves up to two meters (6.5 feet). "It is a very difficult situation to confront," Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle told CNN. The National Weather Service said damaging waves had been reported.

Here is the latest fromt the National Weather Service in San Francisco:

THE TSUNAMI WARNING CONTINUES IN EFFECT FOR THE COASTAL
AREAS OF CALIFORNIA AND OREGON FROM POINT CONCEPCION
CALIFORNIA TO THE OREGON-WASHINGTON BORDER...

...THE TSUNAMI ADVISORY CONTINUES IN EFFECT FOR THE COASTAL
AREAS OF CALIFORNIA FROM THE CALIFORNIA-MEXICO BORDER TO
POINT CONCEPCION CALIFORNIA...

...THE TSUNAMI ADVISORY CONTINUES IN EFFECT FOR THE COASTAL
AREAS OF WASHINGTON - BRITISH COLUMBIA AND ALASKA FROM THE
OREGON-WASHINGTON BORDER TO ATTU ALASKA...

Some beaches in the areas were closed. Reverse 911 warnings went out at 6:30 a.m. local time to residents of Northern California warning them to stay away from low-lying coastal areas.

The Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964 killed 11 people in Crescent City, California, one of the areas threatened today.

People living in areas likely to be hit were warned to "move immediately inland to higher ground and away from all harbors and inlets, including those sheltered directly from the sea."

Earthquake and tsunami centers said at least 53 Pacific Basin countries may be hit, all the way to Colombia and Peru.

The Japan quake was less than three weeks after the Christchurch quake, which killed at least 166 people.
