Earthquakes shake up northern Alberta

A few earthquakes have been detected in northern Alberta.

According to Earthquakes Canada, multiple earthquakes were detected in the province, including one 29 km northeast of Reno at around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

That earthquake was reported at a 6.0 magnitude and was later downgraded to a 5.6 magnitude one, and adds it was preceded by two 5.2 magnitude earthquakes and “several felt events.”

The most recent report says that a 4.3 magnitude “seismic event” was automatically detected in Grande Prairie at around 8 p.m.

Earthquakes Canada reported people feeling a 5.2 magnitude quake at around 5 p.m. in Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Reno, and Grande Prairie.

The earlier quake resulted in seismic detection near Grande Cache, which registered at 4.6 magnitude.

The quake has been reported to have been roughly 4 km under the surface.

This article has been updated to reflect the updated magnitude of the initial earthquake.
