A 6.3 magnitude earthquake was reported off the Vancouver Island coast Tuesday evening. 

The quake was reported at 7:36 p.m. and there have been no reports of damage or injuries. 

The United States Geological Survey reports "little or no population" was exposed to the shaking, since the quakes struck in the Pacific Ocean.

This quake comes just a day after a swarm of quakes was reported off Vancouver Island in the same area. 

That swarm included two 6.0 magnitude earthquakes. 

There were no reports of damage or injuries associated with those earthquakes, either.
