According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, no tsunami is expected.

However, according to the PTWC, the Hawaiian Islands may continue to experience small non-destructive sea level changes and strong or unusual currents lasting up to several hours this morning due to last night’s earthquake in Alaska.
