All U.S. tsunami watches on the West Coast have been canceled following a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska early Tuesday morning, although advisories remain for Alaska, The Weather Network reports. Tsunami warnings for British Columbia in Canada have ended, but all clears are not yet issued for some areas.

Why it matters: “The first wave may not be the largest,” per The Weather Channel. Tsunami warnings and watches are frequently upgraded or downgraded as more observations come in.

  • Kodiak, Alaska reports tide levels rose three feet in a matter of minutes.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
