3.6 magnitude earthquake rattles Kamloops

Some residents of Kamloops, B.C., were woken up this morning by a 3.6 magnitude earthquake.

Natural Resources Canada says the quake happened at 1:48 a.m. PT Wednesday just west of the city.

Aleece Laird was asleep when the shaking began, and like others, she first assumed it was a train passing her home, but then realized the shaking was too strong.

“There was this jolt and it woke both my husband and I up, and in the classic move that moms make when you are having to stop in your car and you put your hand over your passenger, I did that to my husband, wanting to make sure that he did not fall out of bed.”

There have been no reports of damage.
