Seismic Events Southeast of Peace River

The AER is aware of multiple seismic events that occurred around 8:46 AM in the Peace River Region. There are no reports of injuries or damage to property at this time. The Alberta Geological Survey (AGS), a branch of the AER, is investigating to determine cause, as well as any possible connection to seismic events which occurred in the area in November 2022.

These events are currently estimated to be between 4 and 5 in magnitude and aftershocks are to be expected. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.

Scientists at the AGS use up to 50 monitoring stations to measure and research seismic activity across Alberta. We use this information to form a picture of earthquake locations, magnitudes and discern the nature of these events. Due to the nature of seismic monitoring, any information should be considered preliminary until the investigation is complete.
