    Breaking news, mag 7.7 hits B.C. Canada.

    http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americ...531981708.html


    If you're in California, you may also want to prepare, just in case there's a chain reaction.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Apparently hit a rather sparsely populated island: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...00df7n#summary

    Well, if it makes it clear in and down the bay, I'm doomed. But that isn't likely.

    Do we have any Foo operatives in BC?

    I can give you reports of all the aftershocks that are sure to follow for the next month, starting next week.

    We're on the eastern outskirts of Vancouver, and we didn't feel anything and haven't since the original one.

    Meh, I'm a Californian. If it's less than a 5 or so, I don't even wake up or get out of bed for it.

    I just finished reading yesterday the book, Generation A, by Douglas Coupland. The central characters end up on an island, Haida Gwaii, around the Prince Rupert area -- and about where the epicentre of the earthquake occurred.

    Weirdly eerie!!!

    Apparently my brother felt a quake, but my town is not on the danger map. Craig, AK reported getting a 4 inch wave(last I read), so I don't think the initial wave(s) will do much.

    My niece and her husband man a lighthouse abour 80 miles from the epicenter, said the place did a little shake, rattle and roll but no major damage to the complex. Said they were going to sleep in the tower for the night, highest point on the island. Don't know why they would do that. I didn't feel a thing here but my dog was acting a little srange about the time I figured it happened.

    Me, too. I rode out Sylmar and Whittier Narrows. The only thing that woke me up for Northridge was my cat sinking his claws into my chest.

    You know what it is, this happens every time the Giants are in the world series. Just have to stop that from happening somehow.

    Yep. My brother lives in the Bay Area since before the Loma Prieta quake. He was on his way home when it hit. Since he's a geologist, he turned around and went back to work.

    An after shock, apparently close to the strength of the first one, has just been reported.

    I am a little young for Sylmar, but the other two I was there for. What woke me up for Northridge was my mom yelling at us to find a doorway. I never got back to sleep, and it was a school holiday.

    Hey there was a 2.5 in Buffalo last week!

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/ not sure how to save my zoom setting to the link unfortunately. Definitely a lot busier around the Queen Charlottes.

    same here. apart from the Californian part. though our ones are shallow (under 10km deep) so you wake up for about a 4.

    with a 7.7, I'd guess you could be having aftershocks for a year or so. can you beat our 10,000 plus?
