Science, Technology, Linux, Earthquakes, Education, Geology, Nuclear. My retirement blog. I was a geophysics engineer with a big utility, doing earthquakes for Ontario.
I felt it @ 1:43 PM in Brasher Falls NY
Felt in Owen Sound Ontario
not sure what happened but definitely felt the quake
I'm on kilmarnock Is. (located off Hwy 43 b/w Smiths Falls and Merrickville) and I sure felt it! My house was shaking and the windows were rattling like mad...I was pretty scared for a sec.
We just felt it in Hamilton as well.
We felt here in Toronto (Dupont and Lansdowne) aas well as my wife in Port Perry!
I'm in Mississauga on 17th floor. Saw lamps and book shelf swaying amplitude about an inch about .5 hz.I am getting twitter reports from northern New york to Montreal.
Yes I felt it too in Ottawa around the same time for few seconds.
felt in 3 adjacent homes county road 18 east of martintown ontario approx several minutes before 2 p.m.
Felt in Mississauga 1:43pm
I felt it in Smiths Falls, shook the building where I work really bad.
1:43 pm, I'm sitting here at my computer and everything in this one-story, ranch-style house is shaking. It struck me as how I'd imagine a huge army tank would feel, rumbling by.
Brampton and Mississauga felt it for sure, felt like a Sudbury mining blast!
felt it in waterloo, ontario... apparently it went as north as Ottawa
In Kingston Ontario, felt "someething" at approximately 1:50pm! The ground was moving side-to-side, with some vibration, for about 10-15 sec. I've felt this sort of thing in Ottawa before, but not in Kingston.
Felt here in Oshawa Ontario as well
We felt it in Mactier, Ontario
I'm hearing Magnitude 5.7 but no word on epicenter
We felt it in the Town of Simcoe
City Pulse just reported it
felt it in downtown toronto. computer screen was moving
I'm in cornwall, ON, just felt it as well, around 1:50 PM, lasted just long enough to freak me out.
felt it here in Brampton around 1:49pm. people here are saying it originated in Ottawa. anyone else hear anything?
felt it in chatham-kent!!
And Via Twitter " update: 1:45 pm magnitude 5.7, epicenter at Buckingham, QC"
Not a speck of real information here! It needs to be somewhere near an M6, but the local zone is probably not in communication! The Ottawa earthquake site is blown out.
Felt it here in St. Thomas. I thought it was the dog banging against my chair until everything else started to shake around
Yesh certainly an earthquake. I was in office n my chaior started shaming and my Lab equipment was shaking as well. I'd say not a very huge shakeup but definitly not non-noticeable n scary too.
OMG, the landslides!!!
definitely shook my apartment in hamilton
Felt it in Aberfoyle (near Guelph at around 1:45PM). A tad scary!
That shook the whole house here in Orillia
I don't know how yet but i am pretty sure the Leafs are out of the playoff again because of this
Felt it in Sarnia, ON at around 1:50ish...felt a bit like we were on a gently rocking boat.
I was outside and didn't feel a thing in Burlington although I did hear a rumble that I thought was a construction truck, now I am wondering. We are on stiff clay just below the escarpment - could that be the reason I didn't feel it?
Calls from family in Ottawa and Aylmer QC. Felt it more (per their description) than I did in Kingston. Ottawa, pictures shook on wall (apartment building in Downtown) the rumbling and then over before you knew what hit. Power went out in that building. Kingston, just a rumble, looked outside thinking it was a large truck or something. No other weirdness. Aylmer QC, in a mall, my sister heard weird noice in the ceiling of the store she was in and then the shaking. She ran outside. Is there a map anyone knows of off hand to view the fault lines throughout Canada? Bet Google Earth is getting a lot of hits right now!! Stay safe all.
