A tsunami is not expected after two small earthquakes struck within two hours of each other off the northwest coast of Vancouver Island. The first M4.6 quake struck at around 1:27 p.m. about 166 kilometres (103 miles) west of Port Alice at a depth of 3km (1.9 miles). Then at 2:44 p.m., a second M5.5 earthquake registering at magnitude 5.3 struck 189 kilometres (117 miles) west of Port Alice at a depth of 10km (6.2 miles). Meanwhile, a M6.4 earthquake hit the Philippines just a few hours after the deadly M6.1 earthquake on Easter Monday.
