8.8 eartquake on the Chilean coast, tsunami warning includes Kwajalein at about midnight UTC.

Should I be worried about SpaceX's launch site or is this just everyday weather on the Marshall islands?

On the plus side... are those reefs surrounding it? Should help to break up the wave. As well as the trees.
