The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a Tsunami Warning for Hawaii. Forecasters say a change in sea level readings and a small Tsunami detected by a deep ocean pressure sensor shortly after the 7.7 Earthquake off the coast of British Columbia prompted the warning for the Hawaiian Islands.
A major 7.7 magnitude earthquake shook the Queen Charlotte Islands off the west coast of Canada late Saturday, October 27 (Sunday, October 28 in Manila), US government researchers said according to AFP.

The epicentre of the tremor, which occurred at 8:04pm on Saturday (local time) was located 139 kilometres south of the town of Masset, the US Geological Survey said.
