Agreed, there will be significant aftershocks for weeks. They will taper off gradually.

Should be a few 7’s, dozens of 6’s, hundreds of 5’s, thousands of 4’s, tens of thousands of other measurable aftershocks from such an incident. (typical aftershock sequence.)

I just saw a scroll on tv that said 7-foot tsunami waves are reported. 7 feet is tsunami height? Sounds more like surf’s really on height.

Depends on how shallow your beach is.

I think seven feet is that plus the ocean swell height.

In about four minutes (from the time of this post), you should be able to see what the Chilean earthquake looked like from the seismograph at a local Los Angeles news station.
