A small earthquake has struck near the West Coast of Vancouver Island this morning.
The original 4.0 magnitude quake was detected at 10:22 a.m., about 42 km west of Gold River and felt in Kingcome Inlet, a small fjord near Broughton Island. It has since been upgraded to a 4.6 magnitude earthquake.
It struck at a depth of 10 kilometres, but according to the Government of Canada, there is no tsunami expected.
