Remember, if you are not actually in physical danger.. there is no need to call 911.

No Tsunami Expected (see link below). 

Hopefully no one is hurt, I can’t imagine an earthquake of that magnitude doing significant damage but it is always possible.  Take care everyone.  And by the way, it’s snowing a little outside. 🙂

Here is the main USGS page.  Put in a report if you felt it.

And here is the Canadian Page.  And the report page there too.
