In the largest shake since 2004, the residents of British Columbia were jolted by a quake measured at a magnitude of 6.6 on Wednesday evening at 8:10 PM their time.
The earthquake occurred at a depth of 7.1 miles just off the coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia in the Pacific Ocean. That quake was followed by at least two others shortly after, a 5.0 about 10 minutes later, and another 21 minutes after the second that measured 4.2.
Just under two hours after the initial quake, another aftershock measuring 4.2 took place at 10:16 pm, followed by another just under nine hours later. This one measured 4.1.
The quake, and its aftershocks caused no damage or injuries. There was also no danger of a tsunami being generated by the quake.
Residents from over 30 cities logged on to report the quake after the shaker. Nearly 700 people logged.
