Every earthquake felt in Canada from 1985

While many on B.C.'s South Coast were jolted out of their beds on Dec. 29 by a magnitude 4.8 earthquake, it certainly wasn't unusual.

In fact, it was one of 300 earthquakes of magnitude 4 and higher that have been felt in Canada since 1985 to Dec. 31, 2015.

CBC has mapped all those earthquakes, using the seismic bulletin data from the National Earthquake Database.
