From my pops in #SylvanLake this morning: "We may have had an earthquake here this morning. Power went out and the house just shook like an explosion. Power on now but everyone in town is freaking out. Felt out to Lacombe, and east of Red Deer." #YQL

ORIGINAL: Sylvan Lake experienced a town wide blackout this morning as a result of a possible earthquake.
At roughly 5:55 a.m. Monday morning many Sylvan Lakers reported being awoken from sleep when their house shook and the power went out.
Reports say the shake was felt across Central Alberta, with many communities experiencing a power outage.
Earthquake Canada has not yet said if what was felt in Central Alberta was an earthquake.
The most recent earthquake reported by Earthquake Canada was in Salmon Arm, B.C on March 2.
Fortis Alberta is working to restore power to the area.
More to come.
