Did you feel it? I am in Nanaimo and did not, but hearing from lots of people who did feel it. USGS report here.
The NWS tweeted almost immediately:

I am about to go to class at VIU but if you felt it and would like to share your story, please leave it here in the comments! Sounds like tons of people felt it!
To put in an official report of feeling the shaking, which can be very useful for scientists, follow the link in this tweet.
