A second minor but slightly larger earthquake has struck the British Columbia coast today.
Earthquakes Canada says a 5.5 magnitude quake was registered just before 4:30 a.m. local time, following a 4.2 magnitude quake recorded about an hour and a half earlier near the same location.
The epicentre was 206 kilometres west of Port Hardy, north of Vancouver Island.
The agency says it is currently monitoring a swarm of earthquakes far off the coast of northern Vancouver Island.
The agency says there have been more than 30 quakes since Sept. 14, though none have been felt, and the largest recorded magnitude is 5.5.
There are no reports of any damage from today’s quakes.
No tsunami is expected.
