Tsunami Wave Heights: 2012

The October 28th, 2012 (October 27 at the location of the epicenter) magnitude 7.7 earthquake south of Masset, Canada, occurred as a result of oblique-thrust faulting near the plate boundary between the Pacific and North American plates. This earthquake was likely associated with relative motion across the Queen Charlotte fault system offshore of British Columbia, Canada. There were no physical injuries and negligible damage to buildings from the most severe Canadian quake in more than 60 years.
