The exact location is 12 km NNW of Fort St. John.
Officials with Natural Resources Canada believe this was an aftershock from last weeks quake. Last Tuesday, the region had another minor quake that registered 3.2 on the richter scale and was located 9 km NW of Fort St. John.
Aftershocks occur as a result of stress re-distribution in the region. With a 3.2 earthquake last week, Natural Resources officials say its not surprising to see an aftershock with a magnitude of 2.5.
