Another earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean off the northwest coast of Vancouver Island Friday evening.

The 5.7 magnitude quake hit around 7:15 pm about 200 kilometers from Port Hardy.

This comes after a 5.1 magnitude trembler just before 8am (Friday) in the same vicinity…
Earthquake Seismologist Taimi Mulder says stronger earthquakes like this are a little more concerning than others.
Mulder says it’s always good to be prepared in case an earthquake does strike. She says securing furniture and belongings in your home, as well as packing water, food and blankets in an emergency kit are extremely important.
