A tsunami advisory has been issued for parts of the U.S. Pacific coast after an undersea volcano erupted near Tonga on Saturday.

It is claimed by the National Tsunami Warning Center that areas of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and the Canadian province of British Columbia could all be affected.

Also, those living near beaches, harbors, marinas and other coastal areas are advised to move away from the shore.

On Saturday, the Berkeley Fire Department in California ordered a mandatory evacuation of the marina area, warning of waves up to 3 feet by 7:30 a.m. local time.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center also reported waves slamming ashore in Hanalei.

The NBC NEWS claimed the advisory was issued after the Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted near Tonga by early Saturday.
