M6.0 earthquake Vancouver area

Very interesting.  This is a walk down from the previous M7 earthquake just north of there.  I was interested in the walk up, but earthquakes can walk in any direction along a strike-slip zone.  You've got a smooth fault, and quite a distance before it becomes a very oblique subduction zone.  So I give it a teeny fraction of increased chance that we'll have an M7+ earthquake completing the section very soon.  If it happens, make me a hero, if it doesn't please forget about it.  :)
