A series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions have hit the Pacific Rim.

Tuesday morning(Jan.23) in the Gulf of Alaska, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake near Kodiak set off early tsunami warnings that extended across the southern coast of the state and into British Columbia.

A volcano in a Japanese ski town erupted, killing one soldier and injuring at least a dozen others.

Meanwhile, Mount Mayon, a volcano in the Philippines that has been rumbling since last week, gushed lava and ash, forcing mass evacuations.

Approximately 56,000 people sought shelter at evacuation camps on Tuesday, about half a day after Mount Mayon erupted multiples times overnight.
