3 earthquakes hit off the coast of Vancouver Island

Three earthquakes struck just off the coast of Vancouver Island on Sunday morning.

All three were measured between magnitude-4.0 and magnitude-4.3 and occurred just over 150 kilometres west of Port Hardy.

The first quake was a magnitude-4.2 tremor that struck just before 11 a.m. on Sunday.

It was followed up by a magnitude-4.3 earthquake around 20 minutes later, just after 11 a.m.

Just over an hour later, the trifecta was completed by a magnitude-4.0 quake, the closest of the three by two kilometres.

All three tremors had a depth of just 10 km, but were not close enough to land to cause any damage.
