    Live in Courtenay, B.C, felt the earthquake here it was only a slight rolling movement. My brother lives in Port Hardy and told me the walls of his house moved 1-2 inches but no damage.

    I was just looking at the map today and thinking that it’s fairly quiet again. That’ll teach me to think.

    I came across this article the other day. I know we’ve discussed this before, but I thought it was interesting even if it is inconclusive.

    Apparently there was no report of damage and no tsunami warning was issued but we definitely should know where it was located. And the last one too. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/ this might make it easier to know where to find the quake and subsequent after shocks.

    Is there a site out there with current heat/postion/movement information on the plates? Is it possible to monitor plate activity like usgs does most everything else? Or is it just monitored via seismic activity?

    Also, this site is the only site I have found that even mentions the freaking plates! There’s really good information here, but I crave more.

    Any resource tips would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you :-)
