    There's been no reports of significant effects thus far in British Columbia and a 7.7 isn't that big for an offshore quake.

    •  The 7.7 number is not the whole of what is likely (1+ / 0-)

      to cause significant tsunami effects
      It depends on  sea-floor is displacement and the the shape and size of disturbance, how deep it is...
      other things. I'm not explaining it well, just don't want anyone to be too casual if they get a warning after a 'little' 7.7.
