Getting early reports from eastern news outlets and live satellite feeds of as many as 40 dead so far.
40 dead? I thought there wasn't going to be a tsunami wave?
A Tsunami Advisory is in effect which includes the coastal areas of California and Oregon from the California-Mexico border to the Oregon-Washington border.
This message is for Information Only for coastal areas of Washington, British Columbia and Alaska from the Oregon-Washington border to Attu, Alaska.
A Tsunami Advisory means that a tsunami capable of producing strong currents or waves dangerous to persons in or very near the water is imminent or expected. Significant, widespread inundation is not expected for areas under an advisory. Currents may be hazardous to swimmers, boats, and coastal structures and may continue for several hours after the initial wave arrival.

On the West Coast, you have nothing to worry about, they were never really in any danger.
But, to answer your question, I would think that 100 feet above sea level is plenty high.
