The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has cancelled a tsunami watch Friday for the state of Hawaii after a 7.6-magnitude earthquake in the Philippines.
The tsunami watch was effective at 2:57 a.m. Hawaii time. It was cancelled by 3:31 a.m. Hawaii time.
Forecasters say, with the available data, there is no destructive tsunami threat for the state of Hawaii.
However, some coastal areas in Hawaii could experience small non-destructive sea level changes and strong or unusual currents lasting up to several hours.
The estimated time such effects might begin is 12:28 p.m. Hawaii time.
Beachgoers are advised to use extra caution during this period and swim at beaches with lifeguards.
A tsunami warning for the Philippines, Indonesia and Belau was also cancelled.
