A massive earthquake rocked Alaska Friday, but authorities said there was no threat of a resulting tsunami along the California coast.

A tsunami warning was initially issued for the Cook Inlet and South Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, but by 11 a.m., National Weather Service officials canceled the warning and said there was no tsunami observed and no threat of one in Alaska or on the West Coast.

The earthquake, originally reported to have a magnitude of roughly 6.7, was later estimated by the U.S. Geological Survey as magnitude 7.0. It struck around 9:30 a.m. California time.

For more local news, a 3.5 earthquake jolted Riverside County.
