Are there after shocks in Seattle and/or Portland? When Seattle had that 8.0 earthquake in 2001 we felt it down the coast in Newport, Or (it was 3.5 there).  There was no Tsumani then either.

The tsunami warning has been downgraded to an advisory but not entirely cancelled.

CNN is reporting a small tsunami did occur earlier.

Alaska PBS is also reporting a small tsunami measured at 2 feet off the coast of Sand Point.

Here's a good site that has a record of how the quake was felt throughout the area. There is a list of 30 aftershocks so far at the bottom of the page.

I don't think that is it.  The news said it was a 8.0 (maybe I misremember and it was 7.8).
