There are too many, hmmm, Variables (??? maybe not the right word???)
Not every EQ caused a Tsunami
and sometimes a low Magnitude EQ cause a high Tsunami
and a high Magnitude EQ a low Tsunami!
One Reason why the Japanese Tsunami was so powerful are the Sediments
in that area, they caused huge Wave-Spikes!
And the Boxerday Tsunami was so powerful because of the huge affected Area,
as well as the Shores and the Sea-Underground!
But i doubt that a Tsunami will reach you at your Sea-Level
and when there is no need to worry anymore because the World as we know her
will be gone!
