 A 5.7 earthquake was recorded just after noon today, about 105 miles west of Ucluelet off the coast of Vancouver Island.

A National Earthquake Information Center spokesman in Golden, Colo., says there was no danger of a tsunami from the shallow quake. It was about 8 miles deep.

Geophysicist Rafael Abreu says he doesn’t expect to see damage with this quake based on its distance from shore and the low intensity at which it was felt.

The quake occurred at 12:05 p.m. and was felt by Washington state residents on Lopez Island, as well as in Vancouver and Victoria, B.C.
