WASHINGTON Feb 27 A tsunami was generated on
Saturday that could cause damage along the coasts of all the
Hawaiian islands, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
"Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and
property," the center said in a bulletin. "All shores are at
risk no matter which direction they face."
Earlier it had issued a Pacific-wide tsunami warning that
included Hawaii and stretched across the ocean from South
American to the Pacific Rim.
It estimated the first tsunami wave would hit Hawaii at
11:19 a.m. Hawaii time (2100 GMT).
