    Update at 9:25 a.m. ET: While a tsunami wave has not yet been confirmed, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued this statement:

    Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter. An investigation is underway to determine if there is a tsunami threat to Hawaii. If tsunami waves impact Hawaii the estimated earliest arrival of the first tsunami wave is 1228 PM HST FRI 31 AUG 2012.

    [Updated 10:06 a.m. ET] People in eastern areas of the Philippine island of Mindanao should evacuate to higher ground after a 7.6-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami warning, an official of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said, according to the Philippine News Agency.

    "Residents living (in) these areas facing the Pacific Ocean are advised to evacuate to higher places," he said, citing the areas of Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental as particularly vulnerable.

    This quake registered on the seismograph at SUNY Potsdam in upstate NY. 28 miles deep? Is that what they said? Wow. Hope everyone is safe.
