British Columbia Earthquake

Did any of our Canadian DC members feel the earthquake that was centered in Masset? It was a big one, but it appears to have been on an island? Not sure how far away it was felt. M7.7 - 139km S of Masset, Canada 2012-10-28 03:04:10 UTC

Haven't heard anything yet Barbara. That is a big one. Masset is located in the Queen Charlotte Islands which are off the north coast of British Columbia. I'm surprised there hasn't been a Tsunami warning. Oops! Just googled, there is a tsunami warning for coastal British Columbia and Alaska. I think that any members living in the Q.Charlottes or Prince Rupert and SE Alaska would probably be affected. BC is a huge Province with a massive amount of coastline. I doubt that southern coastal areas will have to worry, if they do then I do too! I live within a mile of the border right on the coast . ;-). Hope all of our DC family and friends are safe.

We are getting reports now. One town on the north coast of Vancouver Island (Tofino) has decided to evacuate to their emergency center. They are waiting to get the all clear.

PF. My snorkel is ready ;-)

I'm still waiting to hear from Laurie, either here or on Facebook. She is in Surrey.

Yep, I am here, safe, dry and unshaken.

We are waiting to hear word from our niece and nephew, my SIL and a couple of friends who are all on the the coast or Vancouver Island. I have a friend from culinary school who works in Tofino so she will be evacuated now.

Just for information, and in case it confuses anyone, The Queen Charlotte Islands were renamed Haida Gwaii awhile back. So you may here reference to either of these names (I still think of it as QC) but it is the same place.

Some people in the Lower Mainland (Greater Vancouver) region felt the quake but Surrey, where we are did not. We should be sheltered from any Tsunami as well.

But if things change I will let you know.

Laurie hope your friends and family are okay. I suspect that even with the tsunami advisory (actually downgraded to an alert now) those on the coast will be safe like those of us who are in protected coastal areas.

Thanks, Bunny.
I just heard from my niece on the coast and they are all fine and were on alert to evacuate but that has been rescinded and they are fine. So I am sure all others are fine too.

I can go rest comfortably now!
