Between hockey, poutine, maple-syrup, beautiful woman and great landscapes... Earthquakes is one thing we are certainly not known for.


That is a real shame, or your standards are simply too high -- only one beautiful woman in Canada?

I'm seeing 2 EQ's here:

Don't know if one was an update as it was 1 second apart but I don't think so as one was a depth of 18.0km and the other was 5.3km

What scares me now is that a bunch of dolphins beached themselves in the gulf and around 30 beached themselves yesterday and died, I heard they do this before a major earthwquake

We had a 4.0 a few months back here in Illinois I posted.

It was around 4 AM and I was sitting here keyboarding when I heard a really loud KABOOM almost like a huge SLAM (I guess two plates just hit together?) anyway right after that my house and I jiggled right to left about two / three times just a little and my son comes running upstairs saying, WTF was that!

Now that was just a little 4.

God those poor souls in Japan.

I also lived through a tremor in Missouri when I was 12 and the ground shook back and forth for about a minute but it seemed like an hour - I grabbed the kids I was babysitting (my sister's) and we ran out onto the driveway fare enough away from the house, trees or power lines but that was also spooky as (brown word).

Glad you are okay. Hope that's it for you. Canada is beautiful - with all the big hills and mountains.

We're in the midwest USA where everything is flatter.

Earthquakes, tremors and plate slaps are no fun.

Does it make sense that a 9.0 vibration would drop down through the mantle - split in half over the core and press into the other side of the crust at two 30 degree angles from the core, pressing the crust for 4.5 level earthquakes?

We live in the Western Quebec seismic zone. Here`s the link to Earthquakes in Canada. Check out the map on the site.

I live outside Ottawa and was online when it happened, but I felt nothing.

give off energy that travels in waves across the crust. If it went down and up like an elevator, we`d be talking about volcanoes.

I think there is only one even though NYAlert is showing 2. One however has a depth of 0.00, but both show the same time (off by 1 second). I'm wondering if they posted one and then revised it? Dunno..... here is what was reported by USGS

3.7M @ 0.00 Depth

4.3M @ 18.00KM Depth

Interesting how 2 sites show 2 sets of data.

Still showing this and hasn't changed. I would assume that a mistake would be cleared up.

I know, that kind of threw me off as well. I don't understand how one site can have one set of data and another something different, with recent events they should know that people are going to be on edge about this stuff and will be all over it as soon as it happens. But, appreciate the link to the site you posted from, never hurts to have as many sources of info as possible these days!

Yea I saw it in the news. A magnitude 4.3 earthquake happened in a region called the Laurentians. It's strange that it happened suddenly when there has been so few since a long time in this area. It brings up many questions into my mind.

Here's a link :

I, we live in Kanata which is essentially a borough of Ottawa, located to the west, and even though we are one of the most quake sensitive areas in Ottawa (Due to the Cambrian formations of glacial rock) we felt nothing.........

I cannot deny that the USGS website is looking scary - there have been many mini quakes in just the last 2 days all around the RING OF FIRE..... The 19th is coming fast.......

Oh well I guess I can still watch Jersey Shore for now.
