Canada : Magnitude 6.6 quake strikes off Vancouver Island

A magnitude-6.6 earthquake off the coast of Vancouver Island was felt by residents across the Island and on the mainland Wednesday night.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the quake, first reported as a 6.7, off the west coast of the Island at 8:10 p.m., about 94 kilometres south of Port Hardy and 11 kilometres deep.

Authorities said there was no risk of a tsunami.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said some high-rise residents in downtown Vancouver said they felt their buildings sway.

The 6.6 quake was followed by a 5.0 aftershock in the same area off the coast, and that was followed by a 4.2 magnitude aftershock.
