Initially, according to the Android Earthquake Alerts System, a magnitude 4.1 earthquake shook the small BC town. However, a little while later, Earthquakes Canada suggested it was a magnitude 3.4.

The USGS preliminary report pegged it at a 3.3.

The City of Prince George’s Twitter account was one of the first to react to the quake.
