MONTREAL ? Residents in the greater Montreal area felt the earth tremble Monday but there were no reports of damage.
The Geological Survey of Canada confirmed an earthquake hit the region just south of Montreal about 10:30 a.m. ET with a force of 4.2 on the Richter scale, not enough usually to cause any damage.
The federal agency said it received many calls from concerned citizens in the greater Montreal area, but no reports of damage or injuries
Seismologist Allison Bent said an earthquake of that magnitude rarely causes damage.
Bent said people living close to the centre would notice walls and windows rattle, comparable to when a large truck passes by.
The centre of the quake was 22 kilometres east of Huntingdon, close to the U.S. border, she said.
