Tsunami Watch issued after 7.8 magnitude quake near Solomon Islands

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Tsunami Watch has been issued for all Hawaiian islands after a large earthquake struck near the Solomon Islands, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.The quake, which struck around 7:38 a.m. HST, measured at a preliminary magnitude of 8.0, but was later downgraded to 7.8, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The epicenter was approximately 40 miles west-southwest of Kirakira.  If tsunami waves impact Hawaii, the estimated earliest arrival of the first tsunami wave would be 2:56 p.m. HST.  "I always want to tell people that there's possibility, with a quake this size, there's certainly a possibility," said Don Blakeman, geophysicist for the USGS.  Details are limited at this time, but the PTWC is investigating the threat to Hawaii.   A Tsunami Watch usually means an earthquake may have created a tsunami, but data is still being verified. It is issued as a precaution and generally indicates that a tsunami may later impact a watch area, according to the PTWC. It may be changed to a warning, advisory or even cancellation based on further analysis. Source
