Twin Temblors off Vancouver Island today

The seismic plates just west of Port Hardy appear to be readjusting this week, with a stretch of ocean between two fault lines rumbling over the last 48 hours.

Yesterday we outlined the recording of a 4.8 quake in the region and today a pair of temblors have rattled along the fault line of the area.

The first took place at 9:04 AM today a 4.1 magnitude quake located 187 km WSW of Port Hardy, that was followed by a second temblor at 1:42 PM recorded at 4.0 magnitude, this one 157 km WSW of Port Hardy.

As with Friday's quake, no damage was reported, nor was any tsunami warning generated.
