I'm in White Rock which is considered Metro Vancouver. We are quite close to the water but are 300' up.

Those quakes, coupled with all the quakes at the junction at the S. End over the last 2 months, and the 3-4 JUST east of the subduction fault off the coast of Oregon, would have me jittery if I lived there!
P.S. I know my punctuation sucks

A Japanese soldier has been killed in an avalanche in central Japan that may have been triggered by a volcanic eruption.
At least 11 people have also been injured, several of them critically.
The eruption sent rocks raining down over a kilometre-wide area near Kusatsu in central Japan, say local media.
Mount Kusatsu-Shirane, 150km (93 miles) north-west of Tokyo, erupted on Tuesday but officials are still investigating whether it caused the avalanche.
Images of the volcano showed a vent on its side appeared to have blown out, while video footage shows a large cloud of black ash and rock being thrown down the mountainside.
