Chili earthquake , hope all is ok in Huatulco !

I hope Huatulco is not hit by any big tsunami, just saw that a big 8.2 earthquake hit off the coast of Chili! Hopefully all is fine in Huatulco!

Japan was far away to when they had the earthquake a few years ago and we were all evacuated off of the beaches for a day as they thought Huatulco could be hit bad and Chili is closer so I am worried about the people there.

About the same distance but Chile is farther East than Huatulco so the tsunami would have to go west then east. Think all will be OK.

A tsunami would have to make several turns to reach Huatulco - I don't think that's physically possible :))

"A tsunami would have to make several turns to reach Huatulco - I don't think that's physically possible :))"

In February 2010 an earthquake off the coast of Chili triggered a tsunami that reached Huatulco 10 hours later. The marina flooded , as did some hotels. It sunk some boats and damaged many boats.

So, it's certainly possible.... :-)
