Officials in Hawaii have canceled a tsunami advisory for the state's coastline, paving 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 early Sunday just before 4 a.m. local time, three hours after downgrading from a warning and less than six hours after the waves first hit the islands.
The biggest waves _ about 5 feet high _ appeared to hit Maui. A popular triathlon set for the island was expected to go on as planned, with an ocean swim.
There are no immediate reports of damage, though one person died in a fatal crash near a road that was closed because of the threat.
