Three earthquakes registering between 4.5 and 5.6 magnitude were detected off the coast of B.C. on Friday morning.

The tremors, classified as aftershocks to a Wednesday quake, struck within minutes of each other to the south of Haida Gwaii on Friday — one at 5:51 a.m. PT, another 5:58 a.m. and the third at 6:02 a.m.

The first was detected with a preliminary magnitude of 4.5, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The agency said the second quake had a preliminary magnitude of 5.6 and the third measured 4.6.

A tweet from Emergency Info B.C. said there is no tsunami threat to the province. USGS said no damage is expected.
