Earthquake sparks tsunami warning

Alaska

ANCHORAGE — The US Coast Guard warned people in far southern Alaska to take precautions after a tsunami warning was issued for coastal areas of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. The warning was sparked by a strong earthquake Saturday night that struck off the west coast of Canada. There were no immediate reports of damage. The US Geological Survey said the 7.7-magnitude earthquake hit in the Queen Charlotte Islands area. The National Weather Service issued a warning for coastal areas of southern Alaska, Northern California, Oregon, and Washington state.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A jury has decided that a Syracuse doctor isn’t to blame for an operating-room mishap that caused a pregnant woman to catch fire during a caesarean section. Kira Reed suffered a 7-inch-long burn on her side two years ago when an alcohol-based antiseptic was accidentally ignited. Reed reached an out-of-court settlement with the hospital, but a jury rejected a negligence claim last week against obstetrician Stephen Brown. (AP)
