VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- A series of earthquakes has struck an area off British Columbia's coast, but the quakes did not generate a tsunami and there have been no damage reports.

The largest quake recorded Tuesday was a magnitude 6.0 and was centered nearly 120 miles off Bella Bella, on British Columbia's northern coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey says several additional quakes followed, with the largest a magnitude 5.0.

Canadian Press reports that word of the largest quake was news to Bella Bella Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Glen Caston, who says he didn't feel a thing.

Caston says police haven't heard from anyone who felt any rumbling.
