Two swimmers stand at the water's edge at Sydney's Bondi Beach after it had been closed due to a tsunami threat on February 28, 2010. People were urged to stay away from Australia's east coast beaches after a massive 8.8-magnitude quake hit Chile, killing 214 people and sending giant waves speeding across the Pacific.
