Following a magnitude 6.0 earthquake in Tonga and a subsequent magnitude 5.3 earthquake in Japan, California’s tsunami and earthquake detection system has issued an alert. Since there was no tsunami warning, there is no reason to panic. The US west coast is nonetheless on guard.
Seismic activity along the Ring of Fire has historically caused tsunamis to hit California and the west coast. A magnitude 9.2 earthquake in Alaska sent off the most recent tsunami, which wreaked devastation along the US west coast.

Normal seismic activity usually does not cause alarm. Larger occurrences are assessed after they happen so that anybody living nearby who might be affected is informed.

A new MyShake app that serves as an early earthquake detection system along the San Andreas fault is available in California, Oregon, and Washington. Larger quakes have been known to have wider-spreading effects that have prompted seismicity in the US, even though earthquakes in the Pacific are often not linked to earthquakes in California or the US west coast.
MyShake uses technologies to alert users to potentially hazardous earthquake activity worldwide. Although there is no way to predict seismic activity with absolute certainty, contemporary technology will give us a good indicator of anything to be concerned about.
USGS, one of the few reliable and well-recognized seismic activity monitoring systems, has recorded both earthquakes. Coordinated Universal Time is referred to as UTC.
6.0 Magnitude An earthquake of magnitude 6.0 that impacted Tonga at a depth of 7.1 kilometers occurred on June 25, 2023, at 4:59 PM UTC.
Izu Islands, Japan, Experienced a Magnitude 5.3 Earthquake: On June 25, 2023, at 1:17 AM UTC, a magnitude 5.3 earthquake at a depth of 10 km impacted the Izu Islands, Japan.
