Nearly all coastal areas in California, Oregon, Washington, Southeast Alaska, South Alaska, the Alaskan Peninsula and the Aleutian Islands are under a tsunami advisory.

However, a tsunami advisory does not indicate a major tsunami event where water is actively entering coastal communities. In this circumstance, the tsunami is only dangerous to those in the water, or on the immediate beach -- like swimmers and boaters. This is a developing story. Please check back for updates. ABC News' Daniel Manzo contributed to this report. Editor's note: This story's headline has been updated to report that a tsunami advisory, not a warning, was issued.
