The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami warning centre says:

NO TSUNAMI THREAT EXISTS FOR THE AREAS LISTED ABOVE.

SOME OF THE AREAS LISTED ABOVE MAY EXPERIENCE NON-DAMAGING SEA LEVEL CHANGES.

I will post an update if there is any indication that those sea level changes might affect us, but it is not likely.

It has been an extremely busy few days.  Thoughts go out to the thousands of people affect on opposite corners of the Pacific.
