Afternoon earthquake lightly felt in Charlie Lake


According to Natural Resources Canada there was an earthquake triggered this afternoon that could be lightly felt in Charlie Lake. The quake was centred near the Jedney Road and the Alaska Highway.

It happened at 1:15 p.m. The website states that there are no reports or damage at this point, nor would any be expected given the magnitude of quake at 4.4 on the Richter Scale.

John Cassidy with Natural Resources Canada says they will now investigate to determine if the earthquake was induced by fracking or a naturally occurring earthquake.
