Kamloops region roused by 3.6-magnitude quake that felt like a 'jackhammer'

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — A small earthquake was lightly felt by residents in south central British Columbia overnight.

The federal Natural Resources Department's website says the quake was 3.6 magnitude and occurred just before 2 a.m.

Reports of the quake were made from several areas of Kamloops, B.C., including the city's north shore and just west of Savona.

Beverley Law says she and her husband were woken up by the tremor that felt like the vibration of a jackhammer.

She says the house was rattling away but it stopped about 30 to 45 seconds after they were roused.

There have been no reports of damage so far and officials with Earthquakes Canada say there have been no further quake readings for the area. (CHNL, The Canadian Press)
