7.7 magnitude earthquake hits off B.C. coastSunday, October 28, 2012 by: SooToday.com Staff
VANCOUVER - Residents on the north-central coast of British Columbia felt the ground roll and watched hydro poles sway as a powerful 7.7 magnitude earthquake jolted the coast.
The quake set off a tsunami warning for the North Coast and Haida Gwaii islands and parts of the central coast, including Bella Bella, Bella Coola and Shearwater.
The provincial emergency co-ordination centre issued a bulletin saying it's believed that a low level tsunami could impact marinas and other coastal infrastructure or create strong currents in harbours and coastal areas.
