The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach, Hawaii issued a tsunami warning for regions near the epicentre, and said that sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated. It may have been destructive along coasts near the earthquake epicenter and could also have been be a threat to more distant coasts. At Valparaiso, Chile, the height of the tsunami was 1.3 m.
It is still too early to get an overview of death toll and damage.

More news reports and blog posts are streaming in just now, but as I said it is still too early for any real conclusions.
