This just happened and information is trickling in.

150 miles off the coast and 34 miles deep.
Tsunami warning up but no details. Building in the city were known to sway, and people rushed out in to the streets. This is quite big. Damage will be known later. For now, the tsunami is the big concern if it forms.

Sounds like both Alaska and Hawaii have watches for now.

Tsunami waves spotted. 1 to 3 meters.
Some areas off Chile could see damaging waves.

The startling fact was the issuance of a Tsunami watch as far as Hawaii.
