peace from the niagara region.

apparently a heavy storm will take place tonight which extends from southwestern ontario, north to the bruce peninsula and across the greater toronto area


“Gusts up to 100km/h or more, heavy downpours and small hail are all possible and of course when there's severe thunderstorms there's always a chance for tornadic activity as well,” notes Dillon.

The risk of severe weather extends from southwestern Ontario, north to the Bruce Peninsula and across the Greater Toronto Area.

Aftershocks (when they occur) are usually associated with large quakes. They don't always happen, though. They also tend to be significantly smaller than the original. For a quake this size, if there are aftershocks, they will likely be in the M3 to M4 range.

Very strange I see this post today. Considering that Hartford, Connecticut had a 5.0 magnitude Earthquake. Never in my life Have I heard of a Earthquake in Connecticut untill today, and then there's this post of yours.

edit: The earthquake was from Canada Siesmic reader And could be felt in Connecticut from the aftershocks, or it did indeed offset something here so we had a earthquake as well.

Wow, that is shallow.

www.helium.com...

"Shallow focus earthquakes are much more common than deep focus earthquakes, and unfortunately they cause most damage on the surface because they are closer to the surface and therefore produce stronger shaking on the surface. For example, most earthquakes around the San Andreas Fault in California usually have a focus less than 20 km deep. Shallow focus earthquakes occur around a fault line such as the San Andreas Fault, and they are generally associated with mountain ranges or with mid-ocean ridges or trenches.

Earthquakes are among the most frightening of natural disasters, and of these the shallow-focus earthquakes are the most deadly of all."

I would imagine that if the magnitude were a little higher that the damage would of been pretty bad. If there is a larger aftershock at those depths I wouldn't want to be anywhere around there.

WHOO HOOO! That was friggin awsome! I live in Orleans, which is the east end of Ottawa, and it felt like a wave went through my house.

I was half asleep on the couch and could hear it coming vagely (sp) but I thought it was a truck, and then it sounded like the truck was driving through my house. It got so loud and then it started shaking like crazy. Then it "rolled away" which is the best way I can describe it.

I accually wanted to get on here to ask anyone who has experienced many earthquakes if that "rolling wave" type of earthquake is normal. I could litterally hear it after it hit my house moving away for about 30 seconds.

For those of you saying "meh, no biggie", it is to us, because most of us have never experienced an earthquake before. Everyone I've talked to thinks it was pretty cool. Thankfully no one was seriously injured, although apparently a lady at a mall near my house freaked out, ran for the exit, tripped and broke her leg.

Does anyone else find it as odd as I do just how far spread this earthquake was felt?

While it is a fact that earthquakes have been becoming increasingly common all over the world, or at the very least human interest (ie - the media) in them has picked up increasingly over the past couple years, I do not recall a single other occasion where so many various states, much less the numerous cities have all felt it.

Maybe i've just never noticed it before... but seriously, i've never noticed such widespread (as in location) commenting on earthquakes in the past.

Just curious, as my speculation finds this rather strange.

Possible tornado touches down in Midland, Ontario

There are unofficial reports that a state of Emergency has been declared in Midland, Ontario, following a possible tornado.

Earthquake in Canada and the US, a tornado in Midland, Ontario (and there are more tornado warnings for other regions), and, as a poster a few posts back stated, now we are bracing for severe storms throughout Southern Ontario.

What a day.

What's next?!

I live in Ottawa and was at my daughter's grad when it happened, it wasn't that big if your on the ground level, but apparently if you were in a highrise it was pretty intimidating.
Plenty of people were looking around like deer in the headlights, but a majority were relaxed and calm.

From CBC i read it was a 5.5 and its epicenter was 61km north of Ottawa, near the Quebec and Ontario Boarder. Apparently we had one in 1998 and it was a 5.4 (i remember that one) and when i was a young kid about 10 i remember my first earthquake that was here. So its not the first time, nor the last.
My cell phone service was affected by this or potentially it was affected by the amount of calls people were making and flooded the cell towers...either way my phone service for both text messages and voice calls was not working for a while until i turned the phone off then back on and then i had service.
Government buildings and schools were evacuated but not for long.

There is a fault line near the st.lawrence (if i remember this correctly) which is active and produces 5.5 average earthquakes every 10 years or so.

Live in Montreal, was at work and didn't feel a thing...

Came back home and EVERYONE is talking about it !! Why do I always miss all the fun ?????

"Tsunami warning issued for Harper's "fake lake"!

Now, THAT was funny ! Come to think of it...good reason to inflate the one billion dollar budget already in place for the G20/G8 summits...cleaning, psychological therapy, R & D...yeah...Let's just double that amount !!


What is odd is that even being a 5.0 earthquake, it was felt on such a large scale. Isn't that strange?

Be safe, everyone.

Yeah accually, after I finished running around outside talking to my neighbors just to make sure I wasn't crazy and they were ok, I jumped on my laptop and googled it.

The first thing that came up was some thread on another site (godlikeproductions) and people were posting from all over. I couldn't believe it was so widespread.

I can honestly say the first thing that came to my mind was "did the gulf floor collapse?". Then I was wondering if it was something to do with solar activity because my cell wasn't working. I think I need to take my tin-foil hat off for a while.

As I already posted in this thread, I work in Ottawa and I felt it very strong.

This is a bit strange:
I called my mom later today to ask her if she felt it, in Mauricie (That's a bit further than Montreal, to the East). And she said she felt vibrations for 1 mins there.

They live in another house, and just got there today. And they said the house was infested by Ants when they got there. The floor in the basement bathroom was BLACK of ants. And they never saw Ants in the house before.

Do you think that might have something to do with the earthquake? Ants might have felt it coming or something, and rush into in the house. They don't know if the invasion started this morning or couple days before.

I guess one way to tell if they swarmed the house because of the earthquake would be to observe if they were mostly under tables or doorways or the basement. From what i read there were tons in the basement so its a possibility.
That is of course of ants follow the same logic as we humans do when it comes to earthquakes :p

Anyhow, good luck with that. I deal with ants trying to get into my trailer where i camp for the summer, even though i do manage to keep them away for the most part, they continue to manage to find new ways in.
I keep my spot clean, my trailer clean, but i guess they found something they really like and refuse to give up trying to get in.

the quake was worst just east of Kazabazua quebec....Near Maniwaki quevbec (in that whole general area)...There was a bridge collapse of 40ft, a rock slide in poltimore quebec (nearKaz)..etc etc..


SO in a sense that guy who predicted something would happen on the 23 was somewhat right...haha

The tornado severity level has increased - we're being told to stay indoors in the basement if possible... first time for this for the entire province of Ontario... I still think the earthquake and tornado and G8/G20 are all tied in - this is too freaky to be purely coincidence... I wasn't gonna say HARRP, but it sure does feel like someone or something's playing around with the weather and ground in our neck of the woods.
