MISSION (NEWS 1130) – For the second time in just the past few days an earthquake has been felt in the Fraser Valley.

The US Geological Survey confirms the  2.6 quake struck 5km east of Mission just after 4:30am this morning. There are no reports of any damage.

NEWS 1130 received a lot of calls to the newsroom from Abbotsford and Mission.

Greg lives in the Stave Lake area of Mission. “We live in a log house so it’s pretty secure though it was enough to make the bed shake for probably three to five seconds.”

This man also called us from his home in Mission. “You hear the grumbling, the rumbling and you can just feel a very minor shake but it was very quick and done.”

On Thursday night, there was a small shaker just north of Abbotsford. The US Geological Survey pegged that one at a magnitude 2.4.
