The earthquake in Chile and tsunamis

A huge earthquake occurred in Chile yesterday, causing tsunamis, which is washing ashore in Japan now. But they have not caused serious damage.
Fifty years ago, tsunamis generated by a large earthquake in Chile (1960 Valdivia earthquake) killed 140 people in Japan. So people experienced the tsunamis feared them.
The areas damaged in Tohoku region at that time have heavy-duty coastal levees and highways go not by near the sea but in the mountains.

Although The full scale of the earthquake's devastation are not known, I am sorry for the suffering of people in Chile.
