Based on all available data a major tsunami is not expected to strike the state of Hawaii, however a tsunami advisory remains in effect for the Hawaiian Islands following an earthquake off Northern Chile. The earliest tsunami waves may impact the Hawaiian Islands is at 3:11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015.
