The plates along the Haida Gwaii fault between the Islands 
and Vancouver island rattled once again on Monday


There was another shudder along the fault line of Haida Gwaii with a  4.8 magnitude earthquake recorded at 10:46 Monday evening just off the southern tip of the islands.

The epicentre was noted as 297 kilometres South of Prince Rupert

According to the USGS, the temblor had a depth of 10 kilometres.

There was no Tsunami alert generated by the seismic event

It's the latest of what have been a string of similar sized events in the last few months.
