From your source:

"A strong earthquake has occurred, but a tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, or Alaska coast. NO tsunami warning, watch or advisory is in effect for these areas.

Based on the earthquake magnitude, location and historic tsunami records, a damaging tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska coasts. At coastal locations which have experienced strong ground shaking, local tsunamis are possible due to underwater landslides.

At 12:05 PM Pacific Standard Time on February 11, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 7.0 occurred near the coast of central Chile . (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.)

Pacific coastal regions outside California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska should refer to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center messages for information on the event."

Oh wow, I hope everyone is alright!, See this is the thing, if I were anywhere near the place affected by last years earthquake I would of moved right out of there in heart beat, I know times are hard but seriously, being in seismic prone area is not smart. Although! honestly if you think about it nowhere you go is safe, it's either a tsunami/earthquake threat, tornado threat, hurricanes, flooding, drought, monsoons, God the list goes on, it's better to just be.
