Lumbonians were seen stumbling around, some even falling down. It was either an earthquake or some were celebrating Kraft Hockey Day early.

New earthquake on the weekend (I felt it too). Woke up half the household...

Social media was awash with people in Lumby, east of Vernon, saying they were woken up in the early hours of Saturday morning, July 20, and felt the ground shaking.

The Geological Survey of Canada seismologist John Cassidy confirmed a "very small" earthquake measuring between 2.2 and 2.3 in magnitude took place 13 kilometres southwest of Lumby at 3:21 a.m. July 20.
