According to a report from Earthquakes Canada, a small earthquake struck part of southern Quebec at around 8:00 a.m. this morning.

The 3.7 magnitude seismic event had an epicenter 10 kilometers northwest of the town of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, northeast of Quebec City in the Saint Lawrence River.

There are no reports of damage.

News of the quake is nonetheless striking in a part of the country that is unaccustomed to seismic activity significant enough to be felt by humans.
