Unless it’s a Thrust quake chances of a tsunami is very rare (Strike-slip), even then it needs a to be over 8.0 on the scale for Strike-slip to cause a tsunami.

Tsunamis usually cause a great deal of death and destruction, in 2004 quake caused the deaths of 250,000 people.
btw you probably won’t have enough time, if you ever see the ocean being sucked away… get out of there PDQ.
