You realize I hope that a tsunami is a tidal wave.. Not a kinetic reaction in the Tectonic plates?
Yellowstone is far in on the tectonic shelf, though there is a lot of volcanic activity from the subduction over on the coast-the quake would have to be massively more powerful to really trigger a reaction. This activity in YS just looks like it's normal (relatively recent) burbling.

So, Yellowstone is a highly volatile place, volcanic, and an earthquake there could trigger a really bad eruption.
How bad would this eruption be, and like how would it affect the world?
