3.9 magnitude Quake recorded off west coast of Haida Gwaii

The Pacific fault line shuddered a bit off the western coast of Haida Gwaii this afternoon, with a 3.9 magnitude quake recorded 30 miles NW of Sandspit at 2:24 PM

That places the epicentre 221 kilometres to the west of Prince Rupert.

The original listing of the seismic event was 4.1 but was quickly downgraded by the USGS.

There was no Tsunami warning generated by today's event
