Looks like Mother earth is fighting back!
Sinkholes appearing all over the world, oil gushing out of several holes in the ocean floor, Landslides in france, flooding in spain earthquakes in Hait, Chile, China and now OTTAWA!
No matter how big and important we think we are, when it comes to Mother earth we are nothing but infesting fleas about to be brushed off by the biggest wake up call ever!

Is quakes normal in Ottowa ? I know that if there were a quake here in Oslo, things are up, there are never quakes here in Oslo..
The USGS said the two largest quakes in western Quebec occurred in 1935 at magnitude-6.1 and in 1732 at a magnitude of 6.2, which caused significant damage in Montreal.
The largest earthquake recorded in New York, at a magnitude of 5.8 in 1944, was centered in Massena, where it did millions of dollars' worth of damage.
On April 20, 2002, a quake with a magnitude of 5.1 centered 15 miles southwest of Plattsburgh rattled Clinton and Essex counties, causing an estimated $14 million in damage. Shortly after the quake, cracks were discovered in a concrete pier on Spile Bridge that links Oswegatchie and DePeyster, resulting in more than $60,000 in repairs.

Has this been going on since before yesterday? A co-worker of mine said she felt something similar, but weaker, this past Monday.

I live near ottawa, and it was very cool. I live in the country in a VERY old home, late 1800s it was originally built (obviously theres been upgrades over time) but It's a pretty big tall home and when trucks go by it shakes. The funny thing was a big tractor trailer went by and started to shake it which is normal. As it drove away it started shaking again and then a lot for about 15-20 seconds. I yelled earthquake and was going to go outside (I hear doorways are good places to go). You never know, it coulda been worse so might as well be careful. But it was fun and an awesome experience.
On a related note, my friend in cornwall (about hour away southeast of ottawa) had the power go out for a while but hours after the quake. I wonder what made the power go off? or if they were testing the power? weird
