Tsunami warning today in SoCal

We had a tsunami warning in effect today following the earthquake in Chile. It got me wondering what makes some areas more prone to tsunami damage and I learned that the underwater features offshore Crescent City, CA makes it more prone to high damage from tsunamis. What I thought was most interesting was that the Cobb Seamount -- far off the coast of WA -- is actually one reason for this because of it's relation to Crescent City with respect to the Japanese and Aleutian Islands' faults.
