Interesting day today for Earthquakes!

There was a significant 5.2 earthquake near Anchorage today at 12:06PM our time. A Tsunami is Not Expected..

There was a then an Earthquake near Sandspit just south of the Queen Charlotte Islands/Haida Gwaii. It was at 7:22PM our time and measured 4.9. Plenty good enough for folks to feel on the Islands up there. It was large enough (over 4.5) to warrant a very rare BC focused message from the West Coast Tsunami service… A Tsunami is Not Expected.

Finally there was an earthquake of 3.5 magnitude off Tofino at 8:20PM. It didn’t warrant even a message to not expect anything. 🙂

Shaky day!

  1. Ya Tiz the benefit of rss feeds from the USGS, tsunami center and canadian earth sciences….

    I forgot to mention itt in the post, but 3.5 is about the maximum we seem to get in our region on any given day. The last one that size was May 16 in fact.

  2. I think something is broken with your setup Chris.. wx page shows last update being 3:11pdt (I assume thats AM) and your invertor enphase page wasn’t showing much of anything either.
