People in low lying coast areas should follow instructions from local emergency officials and anyone on beaches should move to higher ground. The tsunami threat will exist for several hours, according to the e-mail alert, which was received by Bloomberg News at about 8 p.m. California time. The earthquake was located 300 miles (483 kilometers) northwest of San Francisco and struck at 7:51 p.m. local time, the center said. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
