I am not familiar with your area and all the news on this has been very vague

What is the population in area possibly affected by the primary force of this earthquake? Any new reports coming in?

quake was centered off the coast of haida gwaii/queen charlotte islands, pretty far north of Vancouver.

The tsunami warning extends along the bc and alaska coast. Doesn't currently include the lower mainland (Vancouver).
