Animation Shows Tsunami From 8.2 Magnitude Earthquake in Chile

Here is the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center’s near real-time animation for the tsunami from northern Chile following the 8.2 magnitude earthquake that was centered just off the coast on 1 April 2014. The animation shows simulated tsunami wave propagation for 30 hours followed by an “energy map” showing the maximum open-ocean wave heights over that period and the forecasted tsunami runup heights on the coastlines.

The quake has so far been blamed for six deaths and a tsunami wave of up to 2 meters in some areas.
