HONOLULU — The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii has widened its tsunami warning to include Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific Ocean, while a watch notice was issued for west coast of the U.S.
Sirens were sounded in Honolulu shortly after the warning was issued Thursday at 9:31 p.m. Hawaii time.
The warning follows a massive earthquake that has struck off the northeastern coast of Japan.
It says the estimated earliest arrival in Hawaii of the first tsunami wave is 2:59 a.m. local time

Sky News has just said there is another earthquake warning being issued for North Honshu. The only consolation for Hawaii is the wave will be smaller by the time it reaches shore.
Although as I am typing the Red Cross has just issued the statement that the Tsunami wave is much higher than the majority of Pacific islands.
