There is No Tsunami Warning, Advisory, Watch, or Threat in effect.
It was expected because a large coronal hole has been facing the earth for the last few days hurling solar wind at our magnetosphere at incredible speeds of over 700 km/second
Coronal Holes are the primary earthquake factor.
We are looking for the dark patches, which indicate that the interplanetary magnetic fields connecting earth to sun may be about to experience significant fluctuations of energy.

The massive coronal hole is now turning away from Earth bringing a huge change in pressure on the Earths tectonic plates.
Yesterday's major quake was the is the first of March and the 13th of 2017.
