VICTORIA -- A 4.8-magnitude earthquake rattled off the coast of Vancouver Island Wednesday afternoon. 

At 12:20 p.m., the quake was centred approximately 215 kilometres west of Port Hardy, on the northern tip of the island, at a depth of approximately 10 kilometres, according to Earthquakes Canada.

No damage has been reported and a tsunami is not expected, according to the agency.
