2.8 magnitude temblor off Vancouver Island at Ucluelet

A minor temblor rattled the west coast of Vancouver Island this afternoon, with a 2.8 temblor 18 km west of Ucluelet, reminding residents there of their placement on the north south fault line of the Pacific coast.

No injuries or damage was reported and for the most part the seismic event went by unheralded, but for the recording devices of the USGS website.

It's the latest of reminders of the active nature of the Pacific coast fault lines, which frequently rattle from Alaska to South America.
