Earthquakes Canada has it as a 4.3

Finally some release off of BC which has been fairly quiet recently. Top tip of the Juan de Fuca.

This would seem to be an event that is completely normal.




Possibly creation of further threads may not be necessary for these regular, relatively low magnitude events.

When I look at the last 30 days, it's not normal to me.

Yeah, it's def above average, for sure. But, I wouldn't worry until it gets into the 5.0 or above.

That being said, good catch, duly noted. If the big one hits in the next 48 hours, we can't say you didn't warn us!

When compiling EQ date, it's prudent to go back more than 30 days. Otherwise, it just comes across as uninformed and selective.

A small sample size can prove anything someone wants it to prove.

lol 30 days in the history of the earth is NOT a lot of time so how can someone say that this is not normal. Ok its not normal for the past 30 days maybe but big wooopie 30 days aint nothing on the geological time scale.
