The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) issued a tsunami advisory for part of Alaska's Aleutian Islands shortly following the shallow earthquake.

A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.8 struck in the northern Pacific Ocean between the tip of Alaska's Aleutian Islands and Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Tuesday (Jul 18). The earthquake hit near the Komandorskiye Ostrova region of Russia.

Initial automated reporting systems indicate the quake happened at a depth of about 10km, potentially sending ripples through the seafloor above.

Typical tsunami waves are usually capable of hitting coasts within 186 miles of the quake, according to the US Geological Survey.
