Pacific Nations Breathe Sigh of Relief

The much-feared tsunami that followed in the wake of the Chilean earthquake turned to be, thankfully, a tempest in a teapot.

As it stands now, only Robinson Crusoe Island and Easter Island seem to have suffered serious damage. However, since this particular tsunami is a series of waves rather than one unified one, many nations are still wary even as they call off the threat alert.

Eduardo Avila has an excellent post on Global Voices Online, and points to a resident of Easter Island, Alejandro Tucki (@JanoTC), who tweeted a photo (see above) of a rock wall turned to debris by the tsunami.
