Magnitude 3.6 quake rattles Amherstburg, Ontario

- A 3.6 magnitude quake centered in Canada shook metro Detroit Thursday night.

U.S. Geological Survey said the natural disaster was centered in Amherstburg, Ontario, about 20 miles south of downtown Detroit.

"They happen from time to time, right in that magnitude" in the region, David Gurney, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in White Lake, told the Free Press. According to the USGS, the epicenter was in Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada.

Both the Amherstburg and Windsor police departments tweeted that they had no reports of damage or injuries due to the quake. Few people in heavily populated areas nearby reported feeling the temblor, perhaps owing to its depth of 11 miles. It was also felt in Windsor, Leamington, Essex and across southeastern MI.

Geologists say while they are rare in southern MI, they are not unheard of.
