OLYMPIA, Wash. — The Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says a nearby tsunami will not affect the Washington coast.

National Weather Service is currently tracking a 7.4-magnitude tsunami about 55 miles southeast of Sand Point, Alaska. This prompted the agency to issue a tsunami warning.

DNR says the tsunami is not expected to affect the Washington coast, but serves as a reminder of the dangers of tsunamis.
