Saturday morning temblor on Haida Gwaii

A 4.2 earthquake rattled along the Haida Gwaii fault line on Saturday morning, the quake epicentre located 170 km South of Masset, 233 kilometres South South West of Prince Rupert.

No damage has been reported from the small quake which struck   at 10:49 this morning.

No Tsunami warning was issued, nor is one expected, following the reports  of the temblor.

The Haida Gwaii fault line has been an active seismic zone since last October's major earthquake on the Islands and subsequent seismic activity in South east Alaska.

You can review all of that seismic activity from our archives.

Any media accounts of the Saturday temblor can be found below.
