M7.7 – 139km S of Masset, Canada

A major earthquake with a magnitude of 7.7 occurred near Prince Rupert in the islands of Western Canada at 03:04:10 28 October 2012.  A small tsunami was generated which prompted evacuations of several small coastal/island communities.  The size, depth, and proximity to Ohio caused the signal on my seismograph to be off-scale for about 30 minutes.
