An earthquake hit Windsor and Essex County Thursday.

The United States Geological Survey is announcing the 3.6 size shake's epicenter was in Amherstburg.

"Size 3.6 isn't that enormous of a quake, however in this piece of the nation where we don't generally observe seismic tremors all that regularly, any size of tremor will be extreme," said Jessica Turner, geophysicist with the U.S. Topographical Survey.

Turner said the tremor occurred on the fringe of Ontario and Michigan.

"We don't know which blame it was on, regardless of whether there was a blame," said Turner, including that it is hazy if there are blame lines around there.

There might possibly be delayed repercussions, said Turner.

"So it's sort of difficult to state if there will be post-quake tremors, if there will be they're ordinarily littler in size thus on the off chance that you felt this one, set yourselves up to feel another," said Turner.

CBC's Chris Ensing in Amherstburg: 

The Chemello family in Amherstburg live ideal close to the epicenter of the shake. Dave Chemello said the family simply moved in January. They're remodeling the home.
