2. Our whole building was swaying we live 100 feet up

The West Coast is Due for a Massive subluxation Earth Quake

That's what the Geologists ALL agree on.

Due or Over due. Shit

4. Yaletown or the West End?
I'm in Burnaby. Can't feel it here.

According to the PNSN real time seismograph
http://www.pnsn.org/WEBICORDER/GREEN/MBW_EHZ_UW.2004071... (Mount Baker West) it's still going on.

the wood frame construction. . . I'm in one of the last of the small single family dwellings in the neighbourhood (I'm close to Metrotown),
My windchimes aren't even moving.

edit: one of the quakes was over near Campbell River and one was down in the Olympic Peninsula.

edit #2 looking at the usgs map - it looks like it was in the Nootka Sound area. . . I hope Luna is all right. :hippie:

10. Wow! A 6.3? That's almost as big as what we here in the Bay Area had
in 1989....Y'all okay there? There is nothing on the news yet....

Wonder if the "Chain/Ring of Fire" is going to start shaking all the way down the West Coast....

We are overdue for a tremblor here in the Bay Area....

Report back....

11. well, not quite
the richter scale is logarithmic, so the Loma Prieta quake was almost 10 times bigger than this one.

15. Oh, no argument there....
6.3 is a good size!

I just happen to live in Santa Cruz, about 10 miles from the epicenter of the Loma Prieta quake. It did extreme damage here, and 15 years later, there are still a few empty lots downtown that haven't been rebuilt. It was a nasty quake - but I was out of the country when it occurred, so didn't feel it myself.

19. interesting...
the USGS has removed the 5.9 quake in Washington state. I guess it was just ONE quake (now a 6.1) in Vancouver.

20. From what I've been reading
it seems that the pacific northwest has been experiencing something called episodic tremor and slip. - and they occur at regular intervals. That's as far as I understand - I'm an artist not a geo-scientist.
