Inspectors are studying part of a cliff in Old Quebec City to make sure it's safe after a rock slide occurred Tuesday night.

A stone fell onto the back deck and staircase of a building on St. Paul Street near the Old Port on Tuesday night.

City officials evacuated about ten buildings in the area.

Although 16 people had to find somewhere else to stay for the night, no one was injured.
