Probably not. The "big one" will likely be over 8, maybe around 9.

Not much info out at this time ,, Anything coming out in BC/Vancouver media about it?
In the direct region the population is less than a few thousand.

Depends on what happens with the Tsunami but it isn't really near Vancouver.

Actually the Mayans had 3 different calenders. The one that stops at 2012 wasn't even really a calender but more of a counting system. I'm not that familiar with it but this individual's answer (the long one) does a pretty good job explaining it.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...5185722AAq7E8E

And btw I'm not saying there will be a disaster, since the Mayans never claimed that would occur at all.

I'm in Surrey and I didn't feel anything either.

And the mayan calendar doesn't say anything about the 'world ending'... the calendar period just ends at the date.

That's like me saying the world will end after December 31st, 2012 because my desk calendar has no dates passed that.

She said it was all kinds of crazy... Still can't believe I felt nothing here. Disappoint.

Anyone in the "advisory" zone (most of the lower mainland now) really shouldn't have anything to worry about. Advisory is:

"A tsunami with the potential to generate strong currants or waves dangerous to those in or very near the water".

So unless you're posting from your phone while standing in the Pacific you've probably got nothing to worry about.

Hell, even those in the "warning" areas are only seeing waves of around 40cm.

FYI for Non-BCers: Vancouver & the east coast of Vancouver Island are well protected from a tsunami. It's the other coastal regions of BC that really have to worry.

I really hope someone is posting from their phone while standing in the rain in the Pacific. That's an amazingly funny image.

Global just said there's a tsunami warning for Hawaii and they're worried about 7 foot waves. That makes no sense.
