5.7 Magnitude Earthquake, I felt the ripple

Yesterday afternoon just before 4pm I was at my computer desk and I felt a slight rocking motion very briefly but my husband had felt nothing so I forgot about it. Last night on the news it was confirmed that a magnitude 5.7 earthquake had happened 464.85 km or 288.80 miles from us, according to Google Earth.

5.7 earthquake shakes BC off the S.W. coast of the Queen Charlottes

That is the second earthquake I have experienced, the first was a magnitude 6.2 in 1996 on Vancouver Island. The whole house shook and I dived under my computer desk but we had no damage. It is inevitable that the big one will come to British Columbia, but when know one knows but the Province is always on alert.
