Earthquakes in Northern B.C. Related to Volcano?

British Columbia

Seismologists are trying to figure out if a series of earthquakes in Northern B.C. this week are connected to a dormant volcano 150 km southwest of Prince George.

The eight quakes have ranged between a magnitude 2.8 and 3.2 and began on Tuesday evening and the latest happened on Thursday evening.

Seismologists aren't sure if the small quakes were caused by tectonic shifts or volcanic activity.
