First wave arrival time of 0850. This will be a long duration event. Hawaii observations are seeing some impacts to harbors. Strong waves and boats being knocked around is possible. STAY AWAY FROM THE BEACHES. **0600 Update: An TSUNAMI ADIVSORY is still in effect for the Washington Coast. The highest waves may hit a couple of hours after the first wave. High tide for Westport coincides with this arrival. High tide for Westport is forecasted to be 9.6 at 1030AM. Hoquiam/Aberdeen high tide is forecasted to be 10.4 at 10:53AM. Hawaii observation is 1-2.5 foot waves and some flooding observed. For the Washington coast, there will be beach impact. Stay away from the beaches. DO NOT GO TO THE SHORE TO OBSERVE WAVES. Grays Harbor County Emergency Management just got off a call with Washington State Emergency Division. A Tsunami Advisory has been issued for the Washington coast. A Volcanic Eruption has occurred in the Tonga Island. Tsunami waves have been observed. 1-2ft waves are expected for the Washington Coast with estimated arrival of 0850. Tsunami advisories mean that a tsunami capable of producing strong currents or waves dangerous to persons in or very near the water is expected or is already occurring. Areas in the advisory should not expect widespread inundation. Tsunamis are a series of waves dangerous many hours after initial arrival time. The first wave may not be the largest.
