4.7 quake SW of Port Hardy on Monday evening

Another slight shift of the tectonic plates running up and down the BC coast, this one providing for a 4.7 magnitude earthquake which was reported at five minutes after 10 on Monday evening.

The quake was centred 211 km SW of Port Hardy, and had a depth of 6.1 kilometres.

No Tsunami warning was generated by the Monday evening quake.

It's the second earthquake in the 4 to 5 magnitude range in the last week for the West coast of British Columbia.

Last week a 4.5 temblor rumbled south of Masset, no damage was reported from last weeks quake and that appears to be the situation for Monday evening.
