A magnitude 6.2 earthquake has struck off the west coast of Canada but no damage has been reported. There was no tsunami warning issued.

Natural Resources Canada said last night the tremor occurred off Vancouver Island in the Pacific ocean, 85 miles (137 km) southwest of Port Alice, British Columbia.

A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the west coast of Canada on October 28, but there were no reports of major damage.

Residents in some communities in British Columbia were evacuated, but the province escaped the biggest quake in Canada since 1949 unscathed.

A 7.4-magnitude earthquake rocked Guatemala earlier yesterday, killing at least 48 people in two provinces.
