4.2 magnitude shudder recorded along Pacific fault line south of Haida Gwaii

The latest in what has been a series of moderate seismic events took place along the pacific fault line between Haida Gwaii and Port Hardy this evening, with a 4.2 magnitude quake recorded at 7:32 PM.

The epicentre of the event was located 240 kilometres West of Port Hardy and had a depth of 10 kilometres.

There were no tsunami concerns generated by the Wednesday evening event.

The fault line is a fairly active zone and has seen a number of similar sized events take place over the last six months.
