LOS ANGELES -- Tsunami waves from a powerful earthquake off the coast of Chile hit the Southern California coast early Thursday, but there were no reports of damage or flooding.

The waves caused tide fluctuations of up to a foot at several points along the California coast, and the fluctuations could continue for several hours, the National Weather Service said.

Beaches in Orange and Los Angeles counties were closed overnight after a Tsunami advisory was issued from along the coast from San Clemente to about 50 miles north of San Luis Obispo. Officials reopened beaches in Orange County at 6 a.m. Beaches in Los Angeles County remained closed because of the possibility of strong current, although no dangerous wave action was reported anywhere along the coast.

At least three people were killed in Chile after the magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck Wednesday evening. The victims included a 35-year-old woman who was killed by a falling roof, a 20-year-old woman who was killed by falling rocks and a man in his 80s who had a heart attack, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said.
