The M7.7 Prince Rupert, Canada earthquake occurred near the Queen Charlotte Islands fault zone on 10/27/2012, causing a minor 1 meter tsunami in regions as far away as Hawaii.  It was a somewhat unusual event, in that it was an oblique thrust-faulting or compressional earthquake.  Previous blogs documented the change in spatial forecast contours as the probabilities in the area evolved.  Below we continue to see changes in spatial probabilities, with the are north west of the epicenter seeing increases in probability.
