A 6.6-magnitude earthquake off the west coast of Vancouver Island shook parts of the mainland Wednesday evening.

The quake hit about 94 kilometres south of Port Hardy at 8:10 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Nearby residents told CTV News they felt swaying for less than a minute, but nothing severe.

More surprisingly, tremors were felt across Metro Vancouver as far east as Maple Ridge. Dozens took to Twitter after the quake to report incidents of shaking window blinds, swaying chandeliers and more.

No damage has been reported and officials do not anticipate a tsunami.

The USGS said the earthquake struck at a depth of 11.4 kilometres.
