It would not have been strong enough to cause major damage or injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the temblor occurred at a depth of one kilometre and reports have been received from as far away as Sooke, west of Victoria, and Point Roberts in Washington state, both almost 300 kilometres from the epicentre.
The quake was centred close to the tip of the Cascadia subduction zone, a seismically active area where the Juan de Fuca Plate is sliding under the North America Plate.
