Earthquake in British Columbia

Hope all's well with you and yours, Graeme. Looking forward to hearing from you and hoping to hear you're fine.

The news seems to suggest that Hawaii is most at risk of damage.

It was just a little rumbler; we tend not to get anything too awful here inland but the coastal areas were all on alert through last night. At some point the 'big one' will hit and the west coast of the USA and Canada will take a big hit, if I'm still around then it will be horrible to be here. The disruption to the water, food, justice, health systems will be close to catastrophic. I know they are 'hardening' buildings in Vancouver Victoria, Seattle, San Fran, L.A. etc but you can't protect against a 9.0 quake realistically. Price you pay for living in a wonderful area of the world I guess.
Thanks for being concerned :D

Glad you're not too affected Graeme. Looks as if it's the US east coast guys who are in trouble now. [edited for typos]
