A small earthquake rattled the Charlevoix region northeast of Quebec City this morning.
The 3.1-magnitude quake was recorded by Earthquakes Canada just before 7 a.m. ET about 16 km from La Malbaie.
The area is located in the Charlevoix seismic zone, the most seismically active region in Eastern Canada.
More than 200 micro-earthquakes are recorded there every year and five damaging quakes, measuring higher than a 6 magnitutde, have been documented. The last one was in 1925.
According to Earthquakes Canada, people reported feeling some movement Friday, but no damage was reported.
