EARTHQUAKE!

So i wake up to a phone call. End the phone call and about 5 seconds later. My bed starts shaking, the mirror begins shaking, my bob marley painting almost falls off and the whole shake lasted about 15-12 seconds. First earthquake/tremur i have ever experienced in my life. I have been checking to make sure family are all safe and aware, havnt checked on the camaro yet but shes not my first priority. Family first. Hope everyone is ok

I saw this on the news. I can't imagine what it feels like to experience an earthquake. It must be surreal. Glad you and yours are o.k.

My friend just sent me an article about this - I live right over the NH boarder where they supposedly felt it too - wondering if my dad was home and felt it....

got nothing where I am at work - though they say it was felt as far south as Boston....

Yes, sorry, I started a thread before I saw this one. My degree is in Disaster Science and although I hope everyone is OK, this is the kind of stuff that is cool to me.

Here is the info on the event:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...us2010xwa7.php

Looks to be closer to Cumberland area, about 11 or 12 miles deep.

Here is a map of the last five years.

http://earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca..._region=canada

Last 30 days:

http://earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca..._region=canada

Region map:

http://earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca...pl_region=east

Ottawa and the surrounding area has high seismic activity due to tectonic plate shifting, Toronto is less likely.

Here is a map of likely seismic activity in the region.

More like a tremor. My kids felt it at home, but not me, I was driving!
My daughter thought it was the rumble from when a truck drives by!

Felt it here in Albany, NY

Just sitting still in front of my puter, I suddenly thought I was having a flashback! Whoa! Cool!
Not so cool for you folks, though, I'm sure. Glad everyone's OK. And the Oshawa plant (yes, I thought of this! ) is far enough away, it should have been pretty gentle, about like it felt here in NY.

Awesome, thanks, reviewing dataz now Hmm, looks like 5.0s are pretty rare on the eastern side of Canada (same as the US then). Hopefully this lil tremor doesn't lead to a larger nastier earthquake...
