Earthquake shakes Ontario

June 23rd, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 5 Comments

Folks in the US are more and likely laughing at the 5.5 (5.0) earthquake that shook across Ontario and Quebec today.

Twitter was abuzz with some saying they felt the earth rumble and others reporting they didn’t feel a thing. (After-all earthquakes don’t happen very often here in Ontario, so it was sort of a big thing.)

I was in bed when it happen, so I of course slept right through it.

I have a friend who lives in Toronto. She was out shopping when it happen. She said that she didn’t feel a thing either.

Now the town of Midland, Ont which is about 3 hours and 30 min from me has declared a state of emergency after a tornado touched down.

A tornado watch is also in effect for my area too, but so far nothing.

Though my son is spending the night about 25 min from where we live at a friend’s house and he reports it’s getting windy out there and there is some lightening happening. (Nothing too severe yet though.)

This certainly is crazy weather we are having! Mother Nature must not be happy with us.

So, did you feel the earthquake?

    No, I DIDN’T feel it. I was in a bus at the time. Lots of people in Albany, NY did, though.

    I don’t think I’ve ever felt an earthquake. In fact, in my 23 years living in Florida I only experienced one minor hurricane and several tropical storms. Not sure which I would fear more, earthquakes or tornadoes.

    I didn’t feel the earthquake. Tisk. I’m thousands of miles away. I remember feeling a couple though, when I used to live in TO. And there was one in 2001 that registered as a 6.8 — closer to Seattle, but we felt it here in Vancouver. I was at work when it hit. The blinds hanging on my window started swaying. Scary, but no damage, thankfully.

    Oh yeah, I felt the earthquake. I was at a place that was repairing my car when the building started shaking. I wondered what kind of vehicle they must have been working on for things to shake like that, and I of course looked up to see if it looked like anything was moving on the ceiling. My wife sent me a text message about 30 minutes later telling me it was an earthquake; neat!

    I find it really weird that their has been such a rise in earthquakes all over the world. I can’t remember a year that has had so many so close together.
