Tsunami watch canceled for Hawaii

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has canceled a tsunami watch issued for Hawaii after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake happened off the east coast of Russia.

The center said the temblor didn’t generate a tsunami strong enough to reach Hawaii.

The watch was in effect for about an hour.
