...Tsunami tomorrow.

SANTIAGO, Chile –  A powerful magnitude-8.3 earthquake hit off Chile's northern coast Wednesday night, Tsunami advisories are in effect for Chile, Peru, Mexico, Hawaii and Southern California after a powerful magnitude-8.3 earthquake struck the Pacific Ocean waters just off the coast of Chile Wednesday afternoon, generating a dangerous 15-foot tsunami along parts of the Chilean coast adjacent to the epicenter.

The tsunami is expected to fan out across much of the Pacific Ocean, reaching as far as Japan and Russia, though the worst of its power is expected to be focused westward toward French Polynesia, including Tahiti. There is little or no impact anticipated within the Sea of Cortez, East of Cabo San Lucas.  See USGS earthquake map/tsunami center for complete detail and stories, for general discussion.
