40 Meter Tsunami Wave Hits Juan Fernandez Island


Saturday morning’s magnitude 8.8 earthquake in Chile has prompted tsunami warnings in Hawaii, Russia, Philippines, and among many other places, California. According to several unconfirmed reports, Juan Fernandez Island was hit with a 40 meter tsunami wave. The extent of the tsunami’s ferocity is not yet known, but it has already reached the southern Juan Fernandez Islands, about 400 miles off the coast of Chile, where it was reported to have caused “serious damage”.

One may wonder why an automotive marketing blog is commenting on this topic, but it is only because we often use the term “tsunami” as slang to describe the sudden rush of customers our marketing brings into dealerships. Having said all that, we’re very concerned with the recovery of Chile having received a big blow only hours after a magnitude 6.9 earthquake in Okinawa, Japan, and shortly after the tragedy in Haiti. May the relief efforts be swift.
