In the United States, the state of Alaska has been issued a tsunami warning after the earthquake, says the U.S. Meteorological and Marine Research Organization (NOAA).

The magnitude of the earthquake at sea was 7.5, which corresponds to a very strong earthquake.

The quake occurred south of the Aleutian Islands on Monday afternoon local time.

According to the Canadian authorities, the warning applies to the south coast of Alaska and the Alaskan Peninsula, the sparsely populated areas of Sand Point, Cold Bay and Kodiak.

At least there is no information about the injured yet.

Scientists have previously warned regional authorities that melting ice in the state of Alaska could cause a “huge tsunami”.
