Officials said they don't believe a 6.7 earthquake off British Columbia will cause any tsunami for California.

The temblor occurred at 12:41 p.m. off Victoria Island. It was 86 miles from Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada, and about 173 miles from Vancouver, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Officials said estimates suggest the temblor will not cause any major wave action along the West Coast.
