That's a good one for the area. Not a World Shaker but still one to note.

Anyone feel it over there?

Magnitude: 4.9
DateTime: Thursday August 18 2011, 15:35:47 UTC
Region: Queen Charlotte Islands, Canada region
Depth: 13 km

Actually reporting 2 at a few seconds apart. Could be a glitch as USGS is reporting only one but this site feeds from USGS so it's a guess.

Actually below but close as I can see.



The San Andreas Fault is the sliding boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. It slices California in two from Cape Mendocino to the Mexican border. San Diego, Los Angeles and Big Sur are on the Pacific Plate. San Francisco, Sacramento and the Sierra Nevada are on the North American Plate. And despite San Francisco’s legendary 1906 earthquake, the San Andreas Fault does not go through the city. But communities like Desert Hot Springs, San Bernardino, Wrightwood, Palmdale, Gorman, Frazier Park, Daly City. Point Reyes Station and Bod

Greetings Jude 11.

I live right on the coast in Vancouver, and didnt feel anything at all. It may have been on the outside of Vancouver Island, and the west coast of the Island may have felt something.

San Andreas Fault is in California.
I believe this earthquake is on the Cascadia Fault line.

Edit to add information on Cascadia fault wikipedia
Although the fault does run to Northern California, the position of this earthquake doesn't make it close to the San Andreas.

It's in the Charlottes out in the ocean so maybe someone up there got a tremble.

Interesting! Jude, I'd pop into the 'whats happening in Washington State' thread and add this (can't link, on iPhone) but I bet westcoast & regulars would be interested in this! Hopefully it's not foreshocks to the Cascadia subduction zone :/ even though it's just a 4.9, thats one of the bigger ones up that way of late, yes?

Yeah, this is a little larger than usual although it does happen. With a few at 4.5 on average it is worth watching.
