A major 7.7 magnitude earthquake shook the Queen Charlotte Islands off the west coast of Canada late Saturday. There were no reports of major damage. Residents in parts of British Columbia were evacuated, but the province appeared to escape the biggest quake in Canada since 1949 largely unscathed.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles (5 kilometers) and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland.

At least 100,000 people in Hawaii were ordered to move from the shoreline to higher ground late on Saturday after a tsunami warning, but the first waves were less forceful than had been feared and no damage was initially reported.

So, how's this play with Canada's nuclear power industry... Or do you have one? :D

No matter where you live on this one and only Earth, there is the possibility of an earthquake. Which is why it's "only a matter of time" for your neighborhood.:D
