Experts are calling a streak of earthquakes felt across the southern part of the province last night “unusual”.
Three quakes measuring magnitudes of over 6 hit just before midnight yesterday, followed by at least 5 significant aftershocks stretching in to the early morning.
The quakes were felt south of Port Hardy on the Northeast end of Vancouver Island.
Initial reports indicate no tsunami risks, but experts will continue to assess risks over the next few days.
No damages or casualties have been reported as a result of the earthquakes.
