A small earthquake rattled some homes, and some nerves, on the south shore of Nova Scotia Tuesday morning.
Earthquakes Canada reported a 3.0-magnitude earthquake around 10:40 a.m. Tuesday.
The quake was centred about 42 kilometres southwest of Digby and was felt by more than two dozen residents in the area, Earthquakes Canada said.
There were no reports of damage.
This wasn’t the first small earthquake to rattle Nova Scotia communities — a magnitude 3.8 earthquake near the mouth of the Bay of Fundy on Canada Day in 2015 was felt in the Nova Scotia communities of Clare and Yarmouth

A 3.2-magnitude quake also happened about 26 kilometres south-southwest of Yarmouth this past June.
The small New Brunswick village of McAdam was shaken by a “swarm” of more than 100 small earthquakes in February. McAdam Mayor Frank Carroll said at the time the village experienced about 20 small quakes in just one day.
A 3.3-magnitude quake on Feb. 9 shook homes and broke windows.
The cause of those small quakes, which rattled windows and startled residents is unknown. A team of researchers from Earthquakes Canada was brought in to do further depth testing, however the cause remains a mystery.
