A 8.2 magnitude earthquake was recorded late Wednesday off of Alaska’s Aleutian Island chain, prompting the Tsunami Warning Center to announce that it is “assessing the situation.”

A tsunami watch has already been issued for Hawaii. The alert said if tsunami waves are generated, they will not impact the island until 12:53 a.m.

A reporter in Alaska tweeted that tsunami sirens are also blaring in Kodiak. 

New Zealand’s National Emergency Management Agency tweeted that it is also assessing the situation and said if a tsunami is generated, it will likely take about 12 hours to reach the island.
