A small earthquake rumbled under Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Thursday night swaying homes but causing no damage.

The 3.3 magnitude tremor hit around 10 p.m. but missed by most people.

Maple Ridge realtor Scott Leaf felt the quake while lying in bed.

“I woke up my wife to say I felt the earthquake wave pass through the house here in #MapleRidge.”

According to U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was centred in Golden Ears Provincial Park, 59 kilometres northeast of Vancouver and happened at a depth of four kilometres.

It was lightly felt in Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam and Burnaby but there are no reports of damage, and none would be expected.
