Emergency officials in Alaska are praising coastal residents’ calm response to an overnight tsunami warning triggered by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake. The temblor struck just after midnight about 170 miles southeast of Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska. Residents in Seward, a popular stop for cruise ships, lined up in the dark to drive along the only road out of town.
