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.
