Tsunami? Depends on which fault this came from....possible for a small one if it came from the subducting plates....possible at that depth,

Oh, balls. they are travelling further down. What's your gut telling you Tara? It'd have to be a huge coincidence to have a 6.3 on Vancouver island after the one on QCI and have them not be related! My bad feeling about that area is definitely growing, that's for sure! Stay safe!

Well, I have to say that after the 7.4 down south in Guatemala today, I felt there may be something heading our way....

Hard to say at this point what if anything it means.

Only time will tell, unfortunately.

According to Mr. Viadale, so far there isn't enough info to determine which fault it came from.

Well, I have a few Mountains between me and the quake but used to live there.

Let's hope it's just a rumble.

Quite the coincidence? Sun gave a nice little burp at almost the exact time as the quake.

We heard a loud boom here but did not feel the quake.

I think this may be a warning.....we are worried but prepared. Anybody think this might be a fore shock?
