Earthquake shakes area near Maniwaki

By Tom Spears, Ottawa Citizen, December 28, 2017

A pre-dawn earthquake rumbled through the area north of Maniwaki Thursday, which is part of the same geological neighbourhood as Ottawa and Gatineau.

It had a magnitude of 4.1 (an earlier estimate said 4.2), which is enough for people to feel but unlikely to cause damage to buildings.

The earthquake at 3:51 a.m. was centred 85 kilometres north of Maniwaki, near the Cabonga Reservoir. It was 18 kilometres deep.
