Prince George / MMI III (Weak shaking): The chairs we were sitting in were vibrating for a short time making some feel queasy.
Nanaimo British Columbia / not felt: did not feel anything
prince george, bc / MMI IV (Light shaking): chimes were shaking and tall plants swaying for approx one minute - i sat down as it seemed to weaken me at my knees.
Prince George (Canada) (644 km E from epicenter)(no details): I felt a mild but clear swaying, like having your ground floating on a quiet lake, you can feel the movement underneath, that you are not on firm ground. (via EMSC)
Comox (Canada) (598 km SE from epicenter)(no details): 27 Oct 2012 8:08 pm PDT. I was watching the TV. I felt something unusual and heard what sounded like water running or bubbling in the bathroom.

Castor (Canada) (1357 km E from epicenter)(no details): I in the master bedroom of our house watching tv and I noticed our hanging light swinging very slightly on its own. I had the idea that there might have been an Earthquake in BC so I googled current earthquakes and discovered that there had been the Queen Charlotte Islands Earthquake about 10 minutes or so before. Do you think that what I saw here in Alberta could have been caused by this Earthquake? (via EMSC)
Whitehorse (Canada) (906 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I was programming my heating system when I heard something shaking. I turned back and saw all hanging objects (lights) swinging. the walls were not.... I thought at an earthquake and wanted to see if there was one in Whitehorse area. There was only this one, may be is it the wave? (via EMSC)

Qualicum Beach (Canada) (648 km SE from epicenter)(no details): We were just sitting. It was quiet. All of a sudden my crystals hanging in the window began to hit the window. Then observed the fish tank water really swaying and hanging light above swaying. Thought we must be having an earthquake so checked usgs site and confirmed. (via EMSC)

Prince George (Canada) (624 km E from epicenter)(no details): I could see and hear the blinds on the windows swaying back and forth and the plant was moving so when I got up and moved around the house the lights were swaying for almost 5 minutes. Nothing moved enough to fall. (via EMSC)
Prince George (Canada) (624 km E from epicenter)(no details): Mild but clear swinging of the hole place -a mobile home- : My chair, the table in front of me, the computer and screen, the wall etc. It lasted about 10 seconds I would say (via EMSC)
Vanderhoof (Canada) (544 km E from epicenter)(no details): Pictures, lights and other loose items were in a full swaying motion. Left the home and could see motion in the trees in the yard and feel a swaying motion from the ground standing outside. (via EMSC)
