There are no reports of serious damage after an earthquake and more than 50 aftershocks rumbled across parts of southern Yukon and northern British Columbia this morning.
Natural Resources Canada says the first 6.2 magnitude quake was centred in a remote area about 80 kilometres northwest of Skagway, Alaska.
The Yukon Government activated its Emergency Co-ordination Centre as the US Geological Survey website said aftershocks were continuing at a rate of about once every two minutes.
A woman who works in a four storey building in downtown Whitehorse says employees were sent home for the day as officials assessed several large cracks in the building’s foundation and chunks that broke off a wall in the staircase.
