Good news if there is a significant tsunami is that the first waves would arrive while it is an hour or so before low tide on most of the E coast of NZ.

The P wave from this woke me up this morning - about 11:05am, a very faint rolling around motion for approx 5-10 seconds. Remember checking the time on the clock so I could look it up later before going back to sleep - thought it would just be a biggish earthquake somewhere in NZ, not far away in Chile!

It's scary, my son is over there, he has been in Chile for a month, in the town of Valparaiso but thankfully left there a few days ago to go road tripping and is currently inland in villarica, however there is an active Volcano there! I'm sure it'll be fine, I hope.
