A 7.7 magnitude quake in the islands along the coast of Canada caused a small tsunami and rattled some nerves. This was not on the Cascadia quake zone but a strike slip quake that could not cause the large tsunami that the Cascadia zone will undoubtedly create some day.

That day could be sooner than we think and this quake could play it’s part. The stress on the northern zone is now shifted and it could have been shifted north or south. Now more than ever preparedness, acting on the first signs of a quake and knowing where to go in case of a quake on this zone will save lives.
