The Chile tsunami was generated by a Mw 8.8 earthquake 115 km (60 miles) NNE of Concepcion, Chile.
The tsunami was first recorded at DARTÂ® buoy 32412. Forecast results shown below were created with the NOAA forecast method using MOST model with the tsunami source inferred from DARTÂ® data. The tsunami waves first arrived at Valparaiso, Chile (approximately 330 km northeast from earthquake epicenter ) earlier than other tide gages, at 0708UTC, about 34 minutes after the earthquake.
