Oh Great....

Intense earthquake activity on the ocean floor off the coast of southern Vancouver Island has scientists scrambling to be the first to catch a glimpse of two tectonic plates pulling apart.

U.S. scientists from the University of Washington sent a research vessel over the weekend after seismic equipment detected nearly 3,800 small quakes in an area known as the Endeavour Hot Vents on Thursday.

"The speculation is it might be a volcanic eruption or a magma event on the ridge," said Garry Rogers, a seismologist with the Geological Survey of Canada.

"Thousands of earthquakes occurring over a few days, it's a tremendous amount of energy but it's way offshore," he said on Sunday.

I am reassured to read that the scientists are pretty convinced that this is not going to create a tsunami or "The Big One". But if I see the water receding I'm off to high ground.
