If you felt a slight shaking in Victoria Wednesday afternoon, you weren’t alone.
A magnitude 2.5 earthquake struck at about 12:57 p.m. in the Greater Victoria area, said seismologist John Cassidy.
While the magnitude was relatively low, some reported hearing a “loud bang” when it happened as far north as Sidney.
Even Victoria police responded that they could feel shaking at their headquartes on Caledonia Avenue.
