This isn't big news for Hawaii, they already get 100 foot swells.

I'm not sure if you've ever seen a video of a tsunami but it isn't so much a wave as a rapid tide change - it's like watching the tide come in and in and in and in really quickly - more like a storm surge than a rogue wave.

Another earthquake just occurred at 7:49pm (6.3 magnitude):

Another earthquake has rattled the north coast of B.C.


The tremor, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3, was recorded at a depth of about 10 kilometres and centred about 260 kilometres southwest of Prince Rupert, the U.S. Geological Survey said.


There are no reports of injury or damage.


It is very close to the same area of Saturday's 7.7 magnitude quake.


The U.S. National Weather Service said the latest quake was not expected to generate a tsunami.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

One of my favourite spots in the the Queen Charlotte Islands (aka Haida Gwai) the hot springs in Haida Gwaii's national park have been shut off and drained by the earthquake.

Before:

And now:

The recent West Coast earthquake appears to have shut off the water at the popular hot springs in Haida Gwaii's national park, but there is hope they could reappear someday.


After Saturday's 7.7 magnitude earthquake, Parks Canada workers went to check the springs and found they had run dry, according to Barb Rowsell, who owns Anvil Cove Charters.

"Three people went down to check it out, and sure enough there is no hot water and the rocks are dry and cold," said Rowsell, who has been ferrying visitors to Hotspring Island for years.


The park's superintendent Ernie Gladstone said the springs were still steaming last week, but now, to his dismay, there is not even a puddle left.


"We did have staff on site on Thursday before Saturday's events, and now less than a week later the water's not flowing so we have to assume it's a result of Saturday's earthquakes or one of the many aftershocks since then," said Gladstone.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

And the loss of the hot springs might also mean the loss of birthing habitat for an endangered species of bat that is redlisted:
http://env.gov.bc.ca.../keenmyot_s.pdf

Posted Image



An endangered species of bat may have lost its birthing ground after the magnitude 7.7 earthquake off the coast of Haida Gwaii caused one of island's hot springs to disappear.

About 40 Keen's(long eared) myotis bats roost at Hot Spring Island in Gwaii Haanas National Park.

"These bats come to the island every summer to have their babies and the roosts at hot springs are one of only two maternal colonies that’s right now known in the entire range of the species," said Carey Bergman, an ecologist in Gwaii Haanas.

It’s uncertain whether the bats will return to Gwaii Hanaas now that the hot springs are gone.

"The roosts that they choose are quite special. They're actually heated up above ambient temperature by the water that flows under the island," Bergman said

"I've got my fingers crossed that once the geology settles down and the aftershocks taper off that maybe the hot water will come back."

She says the full impact of the earthquake on the bats won't be known until next summer.

Putting a boat in the parking lot at work soon in Richmond. I suggest anyone living/working in Richmond to plan something out. Not a lot of time once it hits.

It was merely just a small joke.

I know they can exceed speeds of 800km's (Open sea) and that's absolutely shocking to think..

MEXICO CITY - The U.S. Geological Survey says two large earthquakes have struck in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California and Mexico.

The first quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4, was recorded at 2:36 a.m. (1036 GMT) Friday, 163 miles (262 kilometres) south southwest of the California city of Avalon and 167 miles west southwest of Rosarito, Mexico.

Only seconds later, a second quake with a magnitude of 6.1 struck 88 miles (142 kilometres) from Avalon. Both were recorded at relatively shallow depths.

No tsunami warning has been issued.
