Hawaii tsunami smaller than feared; advisory canceled

HONOLULU — Officials in Hawaii canceled a tsunami ­advisory for the state’s coastline early Sunday, clearing the way for beaches and harbors to reopen after widespread fears of waves generated from a powerful earthquake off the coast of Canada.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center lifted its tsunami advisory Sunday morning just before 4 a.m., three hours after downgrading from a warning and less than six hours after the waves first hit the islands.
