I predicted this quake. No, seriously. The evidence is on my Facebook page. My record for large (usually 6.6+ quakes) is now 3 out of 4. Again, see my FB page. And before you ask, I never feel anything lower than a 6.5. They have to be 6.6 or above. It's like seasickness for me. I literally have to grab my desk at times because I feel like I'm rolling.
See my FB page for all the evidence you need. Okay, taking off my tinfoil hat. I'm not a kook. Just a reporter for a newspaper.
Sorry, can't see anything on your facebook page
Maybe your settings are set to where you can't see posts unless you are friends?

Seems I am the only one here who felt it first hand being located in Campbell River, there was two tremors, the first lasted about 30 seconds and was weaker than the second. The second tremor was about another 30-45 seconds and felt allot stronger and there was about a minute between each other.
When this first started happening I thought I was verge of blacking out but shortly after realized I was not when I noticed the trees starting to sway. It was not strong enough yet to shake any windows, plates, etc at my house. I have called a few friends around my town and it was quite noticeable if you were indoors but some that were driving did not feel it at all.
If anybody has any questions for someone who felt it first hand ask away, I cannot think of much more to add.

No, noticeable shaking here in Seattle, WA.
2nd line, sorry, felt chiming in was relevant and important to the topic what with me living relatively close to it, but could clearly do it in one sentence.
Aftershocks following the 6.4-magnitude earthquake that hit off the west coast of Vancouver Island around midday Friday, causing buildings to sway as far away as downtown Vancouver, are expected to continue for days.
There were several dozen aftershocks after the 12:42 p.m. quake, the largest of which measured 4.9, said seismologist John Cassidy of Natural Resources Canada.
He said aftershocks following a 6.4-magnitude quake can be 5.0 or more.
