No tsunami from 5.7 quake off British Columbia

SEATTLE >> A magnitude 5.7 earthquake has been recorded about 105 miles west of Ucluelet off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

A National Earthquake Information Center geophysicist in Golden, Colo., says there is no danger of a tsunami from the shallow quake. It hit at 12:05 p.m. Saturday.

Geophysicist Rafael Abreu says he doesn’t expect to see damage with this quake based on its distance from shore and the low intensity at which it was felt.

A handful of residents in Lopez Island, Wash., as well as Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, reported feeling it.
