11:06 pm
for much of the west coast tonight, including northern california and hawaii. the warning follows a magnitude 7.7 earthquake that hit off the coast of western canada. and meteorologists keeping track of it for us. >> we were just watching from the pacific coast tsunami center. also the one in alaska putting northern california under an advisory. this is about 80 miles northwest of san francisco. so for reference on the coast that is close to point arena. the history of this tsunami so far around british columbia has been seeing reports of about a half foot to a 3/4 foot rise. so thankfully this does not look like a major tsunami event. however, it is being treated very seriously across the pacific where there is a tsunami warning for hawaii where some larger than expected waves of maybe one to two or three feet will be arriving at 1:00 in the morning our time. for the bay area know it looks like after midnight, we could see a quarter foot to a half foot along the coast. that may get extended toward
11:07 pm

passengers. >> reporter: the advice from airport officials for anyone planning to fly the next few days is to keep track of the storm and keep checking the airline' website for change. another option is to set up automatic alerts to your phone or e-mail changes. >> to find out where are they going, are those airports impacted. >> we'll to go philly if we can. >> you'll try in a around about way to get home? >> yeah. >> reporter: another thing for travellers to keep in mine, even if you're traveling three or four days after the storm passes, keep cheg for cancellations and delays. it will take the airlines about that much time to get back to their normal schedules. live at san francisco international airport. art you a arturo santiago. and we'll have the latest on the tsunami warning for much of the west coast and more on hurricane sandy as well. plus, a look at how the hurricane is us. the race to the white house ten

11:19 pm
we're expecting for the northern california coastline, down the mendocino coastline, to eureka. we could see a quarter foot to a half foot rise here. and as is the case with events in the past, sometimes coastal harbors inland can act like a gutter to a bowling alley and funnel in that energy. the fact that we're under an advisory should tell that you the folks at the alaska center expecting wave height rises of less than a foot. this is not an outright warning but still some coastal fluctuations in sea level are possible. any time after midnight to 3:00 in the morning and very likely this will get extended down the central coast, too. so use caution. if you're out at the harbors, you could see some unexpected rises of sea level of slightly above a foot in some of the coastal inlets and bays. 50s and 60s around the bay area. not much of a sea breeze yet.
11:20 pm

11:21 pm
changes come tuesday into wednesday. let me point out wednesday into thursday. we've got rain over trick or treat time. halloween. one of the latest trends in the models has been to push this storm into thursday morning. i hope that's the case. by tomorrow night, we can push it back 24 hours but right now, some mid-week rain and then clearing. >> that's all we need. just 12 hours. >> thank you. when we come back, we'll go out to detroit again and check in with lawrence scott and he'll introduce us to a diehard giants fan who spend the last six months in a baseball cave. we'll explain. plus, hurricane sandy has not made landfall just yet but the storm is already having an impact on the race to the white house.
