Sounds like it was very deep and not on the trench. Could have been much worse. We all should be ready for a big one, given our proximity to a massive set of fault lines.

If by ready you mean terrified, I am.

 

I do have a kit (somewhere) and have moved things from bookshelves, etc. that could injure my buns (and me I guess).

 

But, mostly, it's something that consumes me if I think about it too much.  So I go watch hockey instead.  :)

it's good to be prepared deb

but don't become obsessive

you are still more likely to be hit by a car

ii assume you likely are fairly ok with driving daily

don't lose perspective

 

if you are feeling a bit panicky

take some comfort

watch usa news videos about trump

and relax in the knowledge that it does now appear

that his past misconduct is known
and likely have negative impact on him sooner then later

Injure buns? Bakery?

If you live in a low laying area you would want to seek higher elevation immediately moreso than worrying about a kit. 

 

It will happen eventually, the earth has to let off stress and steam and she is not a hockey fan.

Why would you suggest someone watch Trump videos? Do you hate yourself or Deb?

Hopefully this is the worst of it..

Scary for anyone living on a fault 

We are quite far from there, but felt some decent movement for a few minutes. Nothing broke, but it feels odd when it goes for a while and then starts to intensify, but then it dies out.

 

News report said one person had minor injuries, and a few buildings were damaged, so better off than yesterday's weaker one (6.4) where a couple houses burned and a few more injured.

Even though the quakes off Vanc Island preceded the ones in Calif they are saying they aren’t related......

 

Three earthquakes between 4.7 and 5.1 magnitude were detected north of Vancouver Island Friday morning.

According to Earthquakes Canada, the aftershocks to Wednesday’s quake struck south of Haida Gwaii starting at 5:51 a.m. The second quake was reported at 5:58 a.m. and the third at 6:02 a.m.

Earthquakes Canada said the first had a magnitude of 4.9, the second was 5.1 and the third was 4.7.

No tsunami is expected, Emergency Info B.C. said. There were also no reports of damage and scattered reports from people who said they felt the shaking.

The three quakes come after a 5.8 magnitude earthquake was detected in the same area on Wednesday night. The quakes off the B.C. coast are not linked to the 6.4 magnitude earthquake on Thursday in southern California, the most powerful to hit the state in 20 years.
