A light earthquake occurred in Yukon Territory, in proximity to the Alaskan and B.C. borders, early this afternoon (May 15).
The U.S. Geological Survey measured it as a 4.1-magnitude quake that struck at 12:31 p.m. (Pacific time).
The epicentre, located at a depth of 1.7 kilometres (one mile), was positioned 299 kilometres (186 miles) away from Whitehorse, Yukon, and 468 kilometres (291 miles) away from Juneau, Alaska.
A series of larger quakes, ranging from 5.2- to 6.3-magnitude, shook the region in May 2017.
