Small earthquake shakes New Brunswick

A rural corner of southern New Brunswick has been hit by a small earthquake that shook homes north of Saint John.

Federal officials say the 3.7-magnitude quake was recorded at 9:49 a.m., its epicentre near the community of Evandale, about 60 kilometres north of Saint John.

Earthquakes Canada, a branch of the Natural Resources Department, says local residents have filed more than 200 online reports about the shaking.

Last April, the federal agency said it recorded 22 earthquakes in New Brunswick during a 30-day span, most of them felt near McAdam, on the western edge of the province.
