An early morning earthquake hit southwestern Quebec on Monday, jolting some people out of bed, with rumbles felt in parts of eastern Ontario as well.
According to Earthquakes Canada, the magnitude 4.0 earthquake was recorded at 5:38 a.m. on Monday, about 29 km southeast of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, near the U.S. border.
The quake was "lightly felt" in Rigaud, Saint Bruno, Vaudreuil, and Montreal, but with no reports of damage and none to be expected, Earthquakes Canada said.
Shaking from the minor quake was also felt in parts of eastern Ontario, including Cornwall, New York state and Vermont.
My mom said, "It felt and sounded as if ice was falling off the roof, but it was coming from beneath us. Everything shook beneath us." The 3.4-magnitude #earthquake was south of Montreal in Ormstown, Quebec, Canada at 5:37 AM. https://t.co/lYI31RMypyZachery Lashway on Twitter
