OH! Canada?

The west coast of Canada got some shaking last night with a 7.7 quake at 3:04 UTC.

The large quake was followed by LOTS of aftershocks…

Our little station picked it up 7 minutes later at 3:11 UTC or 11:11 PM EDT last night.

“Shaken, not stirred.” Lots of people felt it but there are few reports of damage….Other than rattled nerves.

The town – Masset, BC, Canada.

How was their day? At least 50 aftershocks after the big 7.7!

A glass…no….a BOTTLE of wine for our nervous northern neighbors. EH?

Aaand it continues…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the little blip at about 19:00? Masset Canada keeps getting a reminder that the earth is always in motion.

6.3 Magnitude at 18:54 UTC. Our station caught it, just minutes later, at a little after 3PM EDT this afternoon.

They have had four more aftershocks since that last one….All the aftershocks are too small for M49A…

Hang in there northern neighbors!

    What goes best with aftershocks, Red or White wine? Bless their hearts.
