6.2 Earthquake off British Columbia Coast

There was a 6.2 magnitude earthquake overnight off the coast of British Columbia.

The earthquake was just 339.3 km (210.3 mi) SSW of Kitimat, on Haida Gwaii.

U.S. Tsunami Warning Center said that a tsunami was not expected.

It was at a depth of 10 kilometers. There were no reports of any damage.

The earthquake was lightly felt on Vancouver Island and the mainland coast.

While small earthquakes are frequent in the region, the last time there was 6.0-magnitude earthquake or larger was back in 2012, when a 7.8-magnitude quake was recorded.
