Earthquake off the coast of British Columbia


Early this morning there was a small earthquake off the coast of British Columbia.


A 4.7 magnitude earthquake was reported at 5:10 am PST today.


It was centred offshore, 156 km west of Port Alice at a depth of 10 kilometres.


While earthquakes that occur offshore have the potential to produce a tsunami, an earthquake of this magnitude would not.


There are no reports of damage, and none would be expected.
