You may be interested to know that there often over 50 earthquakes just in the Vancouver Island / Lower Mainland / Fraser Valley region every month. A website - hosted by Natural Resources Canada - lists both current and historical data about earthquakes throughout British Columbia as well as significant ones throughout the world. While the devastation that occurred on Boxing Day 2004 and the resulting tsunamis is on the other side of the world, it was just 40 years ago that a larger earthquake happened in Alaska that did impact our west coast communities.
