Is it just me or does there seem to be more aftershocks than normal? And big aftershocks at that (yes I know the aftershocks can be bigger than the original).

Lol, smoked a joint before bed last night, saw this thread, went to bed paranoid haha.

I'm pretty sure we will have an earthquake that we can really feel locally before I die, but, I don't think it will be "the big one".

that means theres lots of pressure on the plates. It could be a good thing to help take the pressure off but it could also trigger a chain reaction to cause the "big one" as well

RT Informal Matriarch (@pluckymama): BREAKING NEWS: thousands of Beiber fans learn that Canada is actually a larger Country than the USA #prayforcanada

RT Shania Campbell (@shania_campbell): In the #prayforcanada som1 from the US said "praying for everyone down there" but we are ABOVE YOU. LOOK AT A MAP.

RT Eric Alper (@ThatEricAlper): Only in Canada would there be a 7.7 earthquake and no reports of damage. Even our quakes are polite. #PrayForCanada

RT @peelbac: Oh my god is everyone ok!? I read tsunami waves as high as 4 INCHES gently tickled the shores of the Queen Charlotte Islands! #Prayforcanada

RT @peelbac: #Prayforcanada?...As the death toll slowly creeps into the zero's, a panic stricken nation unites to mock the rest of the world for caring

RT @BrandonLal: I keep seeing #prayforcanada trending worldwide. Finally, It's nice to see other countries notice the NHL lockout.

RT @michaelmcivor11: Brb my whole life. I'm about drown. #Tsunami #earthquake #PrayForCanada 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

Lots of out of town emails and stuff. They hear 7.7 and think everything is in chaos lol

Meanwhile most people couldn't even feel it.

Hot springs shut off by quake?
Quote:
source

The recent West Coast earthquake appears to have shut off the water at the popular hot springs in Haida Gwaii's national park, local tourism operators have confirmed.

After Saturday's 7.7 magnitude earthquake Parks Canada workers went to check the springs and found they had run dry, according to Barb Rowsell, who owns Anvil Cove Charters.

"Three people went down to check it out, and sure enough there is no hot water and the rocks are dry and cold," said Rowsell, who has been ferrying visitors to Hotspring Island for years.

The popular natural attraction in Gwaii Haanas National Park has been a major tourist draw for decades, but apparently they will warm up cold and weary travellers no more.

The park's superintendent Ernie Gladstone says the springs were still steaming last week, but now, to his dismay, there is not even a puddle left.


"We did have staff on site on Thursday before Saturday's events, and now less than a week later the water's not flowing so we have to assume it's a result of Saturday's earthquakes or one of the many aftershock since then," said Gladstone.

Geological experts will be investigating what may have happened to the springs in the days to come, he said.

Carol Kulesha, the mayor of the Village of Queen Charlotte, says the natural attraction will be missed by locals as much as tourists.

"Even though it's a distance from Queen Charlotte, it's something we all like to go to whenever we have an opportunity."

It's not yet clear exactly why or when the springs dried up. The 7.7 quake struck just after 8 p.m. Saturday and residents of the region reported the shaking lasted for up to a minute, but there was no damage to homes or other structures reported.

It was the largest recorded in Canada in 60 years and struck just off the coast of Haida Gwaii. Dozens of aftershocks as strong as 6.3 have since rattled the region.

Rowsell says she is trying to be philosophical about their disappearance, and says she hopes tourists will keep coming to the region anyway, for its other beauties.

"Well as my husband said, the earth gives and it takes away."

I dont know how anyone in the LM felt them I was in Tofino at the time and felt nothing lol. Or I guess the question is if people in the LM felt them how the hell didnt I feel anything in Tofino. There was sirens and we did have to evacuate to higher ground and wait for instructions.
at the time I was enjoying a wicked bowl of chowder tho
