Tsunami warnings have been posted around the Pacific, including New Zealand, Mexico, the USA's Hawaii and California, Japan and Russia and the Australian East Coast (south of Queenslands Double Island Point to the southern tip of Tasmania) after a massive earthquake near Chile's second largest city Concepcion.

24 hours after the earthquake (afternoon, Sat Feb 27 Japan Time), Fortunately Japan suffered only slight damage from the high tide about 1.2m, but No one was hurt! (00;10 Mon Mar 1, Japan Time) 

Many thanks for your kind concern. Incidentally, TSUNAMI is Japanese lauguage, namely, TSU means port and NAMI means waves.
