3.1-magnitude earthquake rattles Quebec-Ontario border

An earthquake rattled areas of eastern Ontario and western Quebec just after 9:30 a.m. ET Monday.

A 3.1-magnitude earthquake was reported in western Quebec Monday morning, just across the river from Hawkesbury, Ont.

Earthquakes Canada reported the quake at about 9:32 a.m. ET about 11 kilometres north of Brownsburg-Chatham, Que.

That is about a 90-minute drive from Ottawa, near the Quebec-Ontario border and close to the halfway point between Montreal and the National Capital Region.

No damage has been reported due to the earthquake. There were no injuries reported, either.

According to Earthquakes Canada, quakes below a magnitude of five are unlikely to cause damage.
