The 8.3 magnitude earthquake in Chile on Wednesday, that killed 10 people and forced the evacuation of one million people, also had ramifications in the coast of California. A tsunami advisory was issued on Wednesday evening for the coastline, though officials were not expecting big damages, as waters would rise by one foot on Thursday morning.

The tsunami was expected to hit Los Angeles by 5:06 a.m. Ventura County coastline received 13 inches of water, while Santa Monica got 6 inches. There was no flooding or damage reported.
