Sixth earthquake of weekend rumbles along fault line off of Bella Bella, registering at 4.3 Sunday night

Shortly before 11 PM on Sunday, the sixth moderate earthquake of the weekend rumbled along what has suddenly become a fairly active fault line off the coast of Bella Bella.

The 4.3 magnitude temblor was recorded by the USGS at 10:52, located 186 km SW of Bella Bella, and 369 km South of Prince Rupert.

The depth of the Sunday evening quake was 13.6 kilometres.

As we outlined earlier Sunday morning, the area has been struck by what seems to be a swarm of quakes all around the 4.0 to 4.9 range in the last 48 hours.

As in the previous quakes, No Tsunami Warning was generated by the latest seismic event.
