I'm SOOO bummed out!!!

I live on the river just across from Canada (near Alexandria Bay), that would be the St Lawrence river. Didn't feel anything!!

When I was living in Syracuse however, the EQ we had back around 5 years ago or so? Think it was centered somewhere in the Adirondacks, felt that one big time! I thought one of my roommates had sneaked into my room and was shaking my bed!! It woke me up, and I was out cold from working an all night shift. lol

I think this area in general is prone to a decent (5.0 or so) earthquake every 5 or 6 years? (okay, small for you west coasters I suppose).

As far as it being felt so far, if you spend much time on the Fragile Earth forums reading the earthquake threads...you would have learned that the geology East of the Rockies (I think its the Rockies...Eastern part of the US anyways)...is such that the ground carries the eq waves further; where as on the west coast the earthquake diminishes in intensity faster the further away it is.

An interesting note however since a few people have mentioned it...I also noticed a few blackhawk and (possibly) chinook helicopters. Fort Drum is right up here and they do a lot of ops...enough that when I hear them I don't even pay much attention to them anymore. So I seriously doubt they had anything to do with the earthquake...but it is quite a coincidence!

So much can be learned from following these thread on ATS! Props to all the ATS posters!

I'm in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and we essentially never get earthquakes. Interesting that one happens while the G8/G20 conference is going on here.

You're way far north of me. Was wondering how far south people actually felt it. I didn't feel it at all. Thanks for responding.

You do realize that earthquakes DID in FACT happen before haarp was created right?


And I fail to see how this has any significance with the g20 summit. this WASNT a huge quake! Nothing really different now will happen b/c of it! SORRY to burst your bubble!


Heres a link you should really look into!-v

I will re-post what I posted over at BTS a few months ago

Matthew 24:6 & 7
"You will be hearing of.....earthquakes in one place after another."

We now average around 30 earthquakes a day, one day recently there was almost 100! Most go unreported by the MSM, unless they kill or destroy property.
Or like this latest one, are felt in a populated area like the GTA

Jesus always knew we would develop the technology to track these earthquakes worldwide and hear about them almost instantly, thus uniquely fulfilling this prophesy in the 21st century. Thus his words are truer today than ever.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Click on the link above and you have the ability "to hear of earthquakes in one place after another", just like Jesus said.

And that's just ONE sign for us, to let us now where in the stream of time we are.

Yes. I felt it here in Hamilton. It was a size 5.5, and lasted for about 30 seconds. I ran outside after my house started to shake. It was very very weird. An earthquake didn't happen in hamilton for 7 years. Hopefully there it doesn't get worse. Makes me think mother earth is getting mad, from the oil spill and what not.

My building rocked in southeast Ohio. Also reports on local news say it was felt as far as southwest Ohio.

Chiming in late here, but I'm in Niagara County, near Lake Ontario and it was big enough to rattle my daughters laptop off of the table as well as two drinking glasses that were sitting next to my sink. (they smashed into my sink) It felt about the same as the one that happened several years ago near Syracuse. Also, one of my dogs was whimpering for a good ten minutes before we felt it. (I just assumed he was upset because it looks like thunderstorms are rolling in)

My cousin was at a Walmart and thought she felt something too.

Maybe it was the Rolling back Prices causing the tremor

It was also felt in Connecticut. It was strong enough here, that it knocked at least one larger-sized (30-inch) monitor off a desk. Coinnecticut is at least 300-400 miles away, as the crow flies.

--airspoon

I felt it here on the Connecticut shoreline. I'm about a half mile from the shore. I couldn't see anything move, but I could definately feel it. It was 3 pulses that spanned about 5 minutes. The shakeing lasted about 45 seconds for each pulse with a little more than a minute between pulses.

I'm not that educated on these kind of things, but I can remember from the classes I took that my teachers said the New England area is high on the list to produce the next big, devastateing earthquake because it has been so long since the area has had one. The Northeast is a low risk area, so I'm not worried, but that was a very strange quake.

Happy Saint-Jean-Baptiste to all Quebecers.

Is it normal for a relatively mid sized earthquake to be felt over such long distances? From Ottawa to Ohio? That's a pretty wide distance.

They are happening quite often these days. I am starting to wonder if there might be some force from outer space putting pressure on little old earth.

Weird... I'm just east of Toronto and I didn't feel anything.

I can't confirm this, but my dad was working in Uxbridge today and said he heard (from the guy he was working for) that a crack opened up in the ground somewhere around Uxbridge? Did anyone else hear anything about that?
