All six quakes were between 6 miles and 11 miles deep, according the PNSN website.

The temblor was situated 218 km southwest of Port Hardy, a town on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island.

The US Geological Survey said the preliminary 6.6-magnitude quake was 6.8 miles deep, about 135 miles southwest of Port Hardy, a town on the northeastern end of Vancouver Island.

Geophysicist Amy Vaughan said the three larger quakes ranged from magnitude 6.5 to 6.8 and that there were possibly some smaller ones as well as some aftershocks.

There were no immediate tsunami warnings following the earthquakes.

There has been an increase in seismic activity in the last 24 hours along the Ring of Fire - the Pacific plate which sees the most earthquakes and most active volcanoes.

Canadian Broadcasting Corp.'s seismologist and meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe reported that the quakes were relatively shallow in depth and showed a horizontal "strike-slip" movement, which lessened the tsunami threat.

The natural disaster had a depth of 46.6km and hit at 10:47am universal time (11.47am BST).

Earthquakes are common in Japan as the country is located in an area where several continental and oceanic plates meet.

The earthquakes were in a close cluster about between 197 and 223 kilometres west of Port Hardy, all happening within 45 minutes of each other.
