There’s been another earthquake.
It happened in the area off northwestern Vancouver Island on Friday morning, and it’s the second quake to hit the area since Wednesday.
The U.S. Geological Survey says it was a magnitude 4.9 quake that happened at 4:28 AM.
It was centred 158 kilometres southwest of Port Hardy in the waters off the west coast of the Island, and was at a depth of 10 kilometres.
On Wednesday, there was a magnitude 4.4 quake off western Vancouver Island, as well as a 4.2 quake in Washington State, just southwest of Seattle.
Both of Wednesday night’s tremors were about an hour apart.
The Earthquakes Canada website says a magnitude 4 quake, especially at 4.7 and above, is strong enough to make walls creak and hanging objects swing.
But the site says earthquakes of this magnitude are not expected to cause major damage or injuries.
