Not much tsunami here

The tsunami wave created by the Chile earthquake did touch the California coast here in Big Sur but it didn't look like much. Instead of a wall of water, we had unusual waves. The waves were 15-20 ft which is about average for a storm around here. But these were stronger than usual; they pushed farther up the shore than your typical storm waves. And they were on a very short period. In the photos you can see that the waves are all lined up and very close together.
