At least 10 people died when a powerful 8.3-magnitude earthquake struck off Chile’s coast on Wednesday, triggering a tsunami. In the coastal town of Coquimbo, waves of 15 feet struck the shore.

A tsunami alert was issued for the entire Chilean coast, but has since been lifted. More than one million people were evacuated from their homes.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck off the coast of Coquimbo, 29 miles west of the city of Illapel, at 6:45 p.m. local time. Authorities said many houses collapsed in the inland city of Illapel, about 175 miles north of Santiago. 

According to The Weather Channel, in the U.S., initial tsunami waves arrived in the Hawaiian Islands, with a magnitude of 3 feet measured at Hilo and 2.2 feet in Kahului, Maui. A 2-3 inch rise was also measured at Honolulu. The Pacific Typhoon Warning Center has since canceled the tsunami advisory for Hawaii. 

The U.S. government’s National Tsunami Warning Center (NTWC) also issued a tsunami advisory for Southern California, including coastal areas of the counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego. NTWC said tsunami waves of less than 1 foot above normal tide levels were measured as far north as Crescent City, Calif.
