Earthquake warning issued for Vancouver Island

British Columbia has been put on high alert for a huge quake. Seismologists have made rapid strides in earthquake detection and are now putting their work into practice.

Thankfully, the odds of the earthquake happening are still quite low, but a series of imperceptible tremors emanating from deep beneath the ocean were recently detected. Scientists now recognize these events as ominous warnings that the earth is on the move again -- this time just off Vancouver Island.

Well we've been told the big one has been overdue for years. I think Id be more worried about a tsunami as most of victoria is quite close to sea level, good thing im on high ground.
