Last night, a 3.2-magnitude earthquake struck the San Juan Islands, located about 24 kilometres from Victoria.

Gentle tremors were felt all across Victoria at about 10:57 PM last night, prompting Victorians to take to Facebook and Twitter to report their experiences.

The quake, which was initially reported as 2.9-magnitude was soon upgraded to a 3.2.

Clearly last night’s rumble was not significant enough to have caused any real damage, but this is another great reminder (like last month’s tsunami scare) to have an emergency plan prepared.

Since we do live in a seismically active region, it’s especially important to not only receive emergency alerts as and when they occur, but to also know what to do in case disaster strikes.
