A tsunami warning has been issued for coastal Alaska, after two earthquakes in the Pacific Ocean.

Both of the 7.4 magnitude tremors happened at a depth of 40 kilometres about 170 kilometres away from the island of Atka – the largest of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands.

All people living by the coast or in low-lying areas have been advised to stay away from harbours and move to higher ground.
