FREDERICTON, New Brunswick, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A rare earthquake shook New Brunswick Friday just before midnight, Canadian authorities said.
The 3.2-magnitude quake hit about 11:49 p.m. local time .
"It was just large enough to be felt," Natural Resources Canada seismologist Sylvia Hayek said. "We'll get a few in a year. A lot of them just go unnoticed because they're too small."
Natural Resources Canada is assessing possible damage, Canwest News Service reported Saturday.
In 1982 New Brunswick was hit by a string of temblors beginning with a 5.7 quake.
