Greater Victoria had a 4.5-magnitude earthquake on Sunday night. At 7:21 p.m., many claimed that their buildings briefly shook. The earthquake, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, occurred at a depth of 55.7 kilometers about 65.3 km southeast of Victoria in Washington state, close to Marrowstone, at 48.025°N and 122.721°W. According to Earthquakes Canada’s website, there were no immediate reports of damage and none would be anticipated. The statement read, “Lightly felt in Victoria.” There was neither a tsunami advisory nor a warning.

Various people who posted on social media claimed to have experienced a shock or brief shaking. Someone who claimed to be close to the epicentre described experiencing four quick jolts.

A humorous comment was made in another post from Washington state: “Woodinville felt a jolt. Thought the cat was shaking his head, but the spouse also noticed it. Others reported hearing a creak in their building but not immediately associating it with an earthquake.

The “Get ready for an earthquake” webpage of the B.C Government. The safety maxim for earthquakes is “Drop, cover, and hold on.” If the ground begins to tremble, go down on your hands and knees, cover your head and neck with an arm, seek refuge behind a substantial piece of furniture, and hold on to your shelter until the shaking stops. If there is no covering available, crawl to the nearest interior wall or corner, remain on the ground, and keep your head and neck covered.
