Power gets knocked out; miners took refuge underground
The Esterhazy, Sask., area was hit with an earthquake Thursday night.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake, which rocked the area around 8:30 p.m. CST, was 4.1 in magnitude, and was centred about five kilometres below the surface. The epicentre was about five kilometres from Mosaic’s K2 potash mine at Gerald, Sask.
A relative of one miner tells CBC the workers immediately went to refuge stations as a precaution.
