Wow! Felt that 4.8M earthquake here in #Tofino just a few minutes ago. The whole house shuddered.
Another good reminder to #beprepared. ➡️ https://t.co/GDwtPp60mi

My friend in Courtenay felt it, rattled Christmas ornaments and shook her chair she was sitting in. Looks like there were two simultaneously? One near Tofino, one near Courtenay?

No risk to #BC but this is a large earthquake. An important reminder to have an emergency kit at the ready. https://t.co/vGqO1Pb6jn
