Another Haida Gwaii Rumbler for Monday night

The plates under Haida Gwaii did a little more re-arranging on Monday night, as a 6.2 earthquake struck the Islands in much the same location as Saturday nights major temblor of 7.7.

Haida Gwaii had been feeling the after shocks of that Saturday night quake for much of the last two days, with most of the after shocks registering in the 4.0 to 5.3 range.

Monday night's quake struck at 7:49 and was a noticeable bump up in the intensity level, though the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre was quick to issue a notice that no tsunami was expected from the event.
