It was a very minor shaker. Felt it immediately, rolled over and went back to sleep but it was very clearly an earthquake.

 

Odd night; a few hours prior to this baby tumbler there was a massive flash visible from our deck in the Gorge area, followed by a huge rumbling crash then a very loud and continuous (20+ minutes) cross between a mechanical hum and one of the old BC Ferry horns. First report online indicated an incident at CFB Esquimalt then later it was reported that a car went hurtling down Craigflower at over 130kph, crashed into the front of a house taking down a transformer in the process....

Hopefully this takes off the pressure for a long time.

Level of energy involved is utterly tiny compared to the scale of the energy involved in the scale of the Cascadia subduction zone.   Using some rough numbers, this earthquakes energy would have released about one week's worth of energy build up in the Cascadian subduction zone

Or about one trillionth * of the energy expended by the folks who didn't knock on doors during the municipal campaign.

*rough numbers -BC only

A couple tonight. Bigger one off the north end of the island and one about half an hour ago that we heard here in Oaklands closer to Port Angeles it would seem.

Did you feel it or hear it? I heard three very loud Growlers around that time.

Huh could have been growlers but it seems pretty coincidental that there hadn't been anything in a day or two and right after I heard it the earthquake site lit up.
