Vancouver Island

Five people were killed Sunday when a whale watching boat overturned off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Twenty-one people were rescued and Sunday night one was still missing.


The U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center says a magnitude 6.7 quake has been recorded in the Pacific Ocean off the northwest corner of British Columbia's Vancouver Island.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The U.S. National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska, says there is no danger of a tsunami from the Wednesday night quake.
