Another Strong E-quakeApril 24th, 2014 at 1:10 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
A magnitude 6.6 Earthquake occurred around 10:10 pm EDT just offshore of Vancouver Island, Canada. The quake was 7.1 miles deep and did not generate any significant tsunami. A magnitude 6.3 occurred in the same area on 9/9/2011. Aftershocks of 5.0 and 4.2 quickly followed the main quake. This area gets an earthquake of this magnitude about every 10-15 years. As I write this, I see no reports of injuries. The quake was felt throughout most of Vancouver Island.
