The answer to your first question is the focal mechanism of the event  
was a strike slip or lateral movement.  See link:

Tsunamis are more easily generated by vertical movement.

The answer to your second question depends upon the networks you  
listen to.  I saw extensive coverage of the multiple events including  
interviews of people from south of the border on Fox News.
