    According to CNN.com it was 7.5
    first wave it and was approx. 1 meter high. At some points.

    Problem is... It is more than one wave!

    And it can vary greatly depending on the ocean floor...

    Thats unfortunate for them thats for sure.

    If anything though it's surprising how rare such incidents occur on a group of volcanic islands sitting on a tectonic plate boundary in the ocrean. Californians should be watching whats going on especially carefully, as they are living in a similarly dangerous area.

    New quake or aftershock from the previous?

    And how do you tell the difference?
