MASSENA – A Montreal-area earthquake was felt in northeastern St. Lawrence County this morning.

Michele Wallenhorst of Massena said she was "woken out of a deep sleep" at her East Avenue home when the earthquake struck about 7:30 a.m.

Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory reported the quake registered a magnitude of 3.9 and was located approximately 21 miles Northeast of Montreal.

CBC reported the quake at a magnitude of 4.5, but no damage resulted from the shake.

"I searched the Canadian news. Sure enough, there was an earthquake at the Epicenter in Montreal," said Wallenhorst.
