Two earthquakes a few hours apart off the northwest tip of Vancouver Island occurred overnight.
The most recent one occurred just after midnight and had a magnitude of 4.3. Earlier, a 4.0-magnitude earthquake hit the same area just after 10:30 pm yesterday (January 13).
Both are located more than 150 kilometers west of Port Hardy at a depth of 10 kilometers, but they were not felt, and there were no reports of damage.
Earthquakes in this offshore region are common, says John Cassidy, a seismologist with Natural Resources Canada, with active tectonic plates to blame.
That’s because the Earth’s surface or crust is constantly moving, with large portions of this crust, called tectonic plates, constantly moving against each other, causing pressure to build up.
“When the stress becomes very intense, a sudden rupture or earthquake occurs along a weak area called the fault, which results in the generation of seismic waves,” Natural Resources says.
“Earthquakes occur more frequently when tectonic plates interact – such as the Cascadia subduction zone in southwest British Columbia,” she adds.
On Sunday, January 2, Canada’s first earthquake in 2022 with a magnitude greater than 4.0 on the Richter scale was recorded off the island, west of Port Alice. No impact or harm has been reported, according to Natural Resources Canada.
