Officials are confirming a small earthquake struck this afternoon, just west of Hudson.
It wasn't a big one — only a magnitude 2.7 quake — but it appears to have been felt as far east as Pierrefonds, based on calls to CJAD.
Stephen Halchuk with the natural resources department in Ottawa says it struck at 3:51 p.m., 5 kilometres west of Hudson, off the western tip of the island of Montreal.
A 2.7 quake isn't strong enough to cause damage of any kind.
"People would say it's like the snowplow truck going by," Halchuk says of the tremor.
