News reports are not making the connection but I am passing this along anyway.
A powerful earthquake with a magnitude of at least 6.7 jolted B.C.'s Queen Charlotte Islands and the Alaska panhandle early Monday, but no significant damage was reported, police and scientists said.
The quake occurred at 1:50 a.m. and was centred about 20 kilometres beneath the ocean floor about 112 kilometres northwest of Dixon Entrance, the waters between the southern end of the panhandle and the Queen Charlotte Islands off the coast of British Columbia, said Bill Knight, a scientist at the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center, in Palmer.
While Knight's centre estimated the magnitude at 7.0, the National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., put the quake's strength at 6.7. Both numbers were preliminary.
It was felt strongly on the northern part of the Queen Charlotte Islands, said a statement from the Geological Survey of Canada office based in Sidney, B.C. There were no immediate reports of damage.
