MASSENA, N.Y. (AP) - Some northern New York residents were shaken by a small earthquake just north of the Canadian border.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports the 3.3 magnitude quake happened shortly after 5:30 a.m. Monday, 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Ormstown, Quebec. Quakes of that magnitude are considered minor.

The USGS says the earthquake could be felt 50 miles (80 kilometers) away in Montreal, Massena, New York, and Burlington, Vermont.

No damage or injuries were reported.
