Kodiak island residents evacuated after tsunami warning

Residents of the Alaskan island Kodiak were urged to move away from coastal areas after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck early on Tuesday. Initially, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said the earthquake was a magnitude 8.2, prompting a tsunami warning.  The remainder of the US west coast is still under watch. Residents scrambled to safety, some seeking refuge in schools that were transformed into shelters. Officials cancelled the warning after a few tense hours.
