Here is a link to the national weather service website where they report that there is not actually a tsunami warning. There is some info there and they explain that there can be "local tsunamis".

This earthquake occurred in a deformed section of the southernmost Juan de Fuca plate that is commonly called the Gorda plate. The epicenter lies to the west of the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Preliminary analysis of the quake indicates that it resulted from slip on a NE striking, left-lateral, strike-slip fault; this type of mechanism has been documented for other earthquakes having locations in the interior of the Gorda plate. This earthquake did not produce a tsunami. Earthquakes with strike-slip mechanisms are less likely to produce tsunamis because they cause relatively little vertical ground displacement. Earthquakes are common in the Gorda plate, which is subjected to north-south compression due to the north-west moving Pacific Plate that collides with the southern boundary of the Gorda Plate along the east-west Mendocino Fracture Zone.
