◼ Magnitude 7.9 - SAMOA ISLANDS REGION Upgraded to 8.3, with Tsunami
◼ UPDATE: Tsunami advisory issued on North Coast after Samoa quake
According to a National Weather Service tsunami advisory, tsunami waves were expected to begin hitting the North Coast shortly after 9 p.m.
The service predicted a 26-inch wave would impact the coast -- with Crescent City being the most vulnerable. On Nov. 15, 2006, a magnitude 8.1 undersea earthquake struck Japan's coastline at 3:14 a.m. Pacific Time, creating tidal surges that started hitting the Crescent City Harbor just before noon and didn't let up until around 8 p.m.
More than 40 years earlier, a large tsunami generated by an Alaskan quake hit the city in March 1964, destroying 29 downtown blocks and killing 11 people.
Now Wednesday and no reports of damage here
