It was felt in Pittsburgh PA too! I heard a report on a police scanner and the officer responding seemed to laugh it off when dispatched. Then there was another report across town of an earthquake. Dispatchers just made an announcement about a 5.5 on the US Canaduh border near Ontario.

weird.

USGS report:

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Click on the "summary" tab and you'll read that there have historically been other similar events of about 6.0 magnitude in the area.

Very interesting, though! It's fascinating to see reports coming in from Ohio, Michigan, NY State, Massachusetts, etc.

I'm in Lansing, Michigan. Didn't feel anything, but it was definitely felt in Detroit. No damage reported.

My family did not feel a thing as they were on the main floor of our house, but I felt it here in the basement. Metro Detroit area.

Yup, the epicenter was in Quebec as best as I can tell.. close to the border of Ontario and Quebec.

I'll trade you some oil, for your earthquake.



Seriously guys, I'm sorry this has happened. It must be scary. I hope you are all okay, and your property as well.

yes! That was crazy. Things actually fell of some counters in my house and broke. Perhaps that is just more of a problem of clutter though .

I have never experienced such a strong earthquake. Hopefully it's not a precursor to a "subduction earthquake", which is expected to hit the region at some point in time.

"Eventually, scientists say, this will cause a "subduction earthquake," an incredibly powerful event that could measure up to a magnitude of 9. Based on geological evidence in the region, it's believed that such quakes strike every 300 to 500 years. "

Ottawa here. What a weird sensation! I've felt an earthquake before but it was nothing like this. I work near the airport and thought an airplane crashed or something.

It woke me up. I thought someone was running on the stairs. Nope. No biggie for me. I spent 6 years on Vancouver Island and this is a common occurrence there.

They are saying that the shaking in Connecticut was due to this earthquake, though that's kind of hard for me to believe. If the Ontario earthquake was only a 5.5, then how on earth did we get such a violent shake several hundred miles away? If that is the case, then weird is all I can say. Everyone I'm talking to here, isn't buying it, unless the quake in Ontario was much bigger.

Right paid goverment scientists

's believed that such quakes strike every 300 to 500 years

I just love how they always make up such data and info, first they wait and then claim.
