    numSlides of totalImages A tsunami alert was issued Tuesday after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck near the island of Samoa.

    The earthquake struck at 6:48 a.m. local time midway between Samoa and American Samoa, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicenter within minutes, and more distant coastlines within hours, according to the National Weather Service's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

    The tsunami warning was issued for the islands of Hawaii, American Samoa, Solomon Island, Midway Island, Samoa, the Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, French Polynesia. There are evacuations in American Samoa, according to CNN.

    In the Samoan capital of Apia, families fled their homes amid severe shaking that lasted for up to three minutes. Local media reported people were fleeing to higher ground.

    The quake was not expected to produce a tsunami along the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia or Alaska.

    A tsunami did occur

    PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (CBS) ― Click to enlarge1 of 1
    A tsunami alert was issued Tuesday after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck near the island of Samoa.
    A tsunami swept into Pago Pago in American Samoa shortly after an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.9 shook the Pacific area.

    There were no immediate reports of injuries or structural damage.

    Fili Sagapolutele, who works at the Samoa News, says water flowed inland about 100 yards before receding, leaving cars stuck in mud.

    Default **Tsunami Advisory For California Coast**

    After todays severe earthquake near Samoa, and subsequent tsunami in that area. California will also be getting its series of tidal waves beginning around 9PM PDT and lasting into Wednesday morning. Though the waves aren't very high at all, dangerous rip currents and unpredictable wave patterns will be felt along the entire coast.
