Just a week ago, three consecutive earthquakes were detected off Vancouver Island. On Friday morning, a 4.6 magnitude earthquake in Washington State struck the region, and it was once again felt on our side of the border.

According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake struck near Three Lakes, Washington at 2:51 a.m. PT. The earthquake was reportedly felt in Seattle.

Two minutes later, just before 3:00 a.m., a 3.5 magnitude earthquake was detected near Monroe, Washington.

No tsunami threat was issued following Friday morning’s earthquakes.

Here in BC, the earthquake in Washington State was reportedly felt in and around the Metro Vancouver region.

Just after 6:00 a.m. on July 4th, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake was detected off the northern coast of Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands.

This came after a magnitude 6.2 earthquake also hit the coast of British Columbia last Wednesday night.
