Shades of the Great Cornwall-Messina Earthquake of 1944
Must have been a shallow thrust to give an Intensity 4 for such a small earthquake. Note that it was only felt south of the border. :). The 1944 quake is my absolutely favourite and I've studied everything I could find on that. I also had lots of in-laws who experienced it. It started my whole 'rock and soil' investigation. I suspect we could have another one, since everything along the river is probably active. This is where the Ottawa Graben intersects the megathrusts. A fun party!
*Note to Liberals -- Seismic has fallen onto hard times in Canada. You can put some money into that, or gouge industry for it.
PS - This is what I want for Christmas, but at $30 not $300. You could connect it to an old android phone.
