CANADA – A magnitude 7.7 earthquake hit Canada’s Pacific coast province of British Columbia on Saturday night, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The quake was centered 123 miles (198 km) south-southwest of Prince Rupert at a depth of 10.9 miles (17.5 km), the USGS said. The epicenter of the quake was 727 km (452 miles) NW (306°) from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This is the strongest earthquake to strike the British Columbia region in 63 years, since an 8.1 earthquake struck in 1949. Today’s earthquake was followed by a strong 5.8 magnitude aftershock. Today’s 7.7 magnitude earthquake is also the sixth 7.0+ magnitude earthquake recorded in the last 90 days. About fifteen 7.0 magnitude earthquakes, on average, strike the planet each year. –The Extinction Protocol
