Tsunami warning canceled for Alaska, Canada

   JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Officials have canceled a tsunami warning for parts of
southern Alaska and coastal Canada.
   The Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says a tsunami was generated by a strong
earthquake, but the waves don't pose a threat to the areas.
   The center says some areas are seeing small sea level changes, but there will
be no widespread destructive wave that had earlier been warned about.
   The warning area included coastal areas from Cape Fairweather, Alaska, to the
north tip of Vancouver Island, Canada. The area extended for more than 700 miles.
