A tsunami advisory has been issued for all of coastal British Columbia following Saturday's 8.8 earthquake in Chile.
The West Coast Alaska Tsunami Warning Center says a tsunami advisory means there is a possiblity of strong localized currents.
No significant inundation is expected, but low-lying coastal areas and beaches are at risk.
The provincial emergency system says experts predict the first wave arrival time of 3:11 p.m. at the southern B.C. coastline.
It says local governments may consider activating their emergency plans, including evacuating marinas, beaches and other areas that are below normal high-tide mark.
A stronger tsunami warning was issued earlier Saturday for a wide swath of the Pacific, including Hawaii, the Philippines, and Indonesia.Report Typo/Error
