Somebody else in that area had to feel that, hopefully an ATSer.
Site Description: SCHQ is located within the Eastern Background seismic zone, in which low-level but occasionally significant seismicity may occur. The region is seismically quiet in all directions from the station for greater than 300 km. The Lower St Lawrence seismic zone is about 450 km due south of SCHQ; the Boothia-Ungava seismic zone is approximately 600km to the northeast. Mine blasts from mines around Labrador City about 100 km to the south are recorded at SCHQ several times each week. The blasts take place around 15-16h. UT and normally range from 2 < MN < 3.
Thanks for that input, but remember there was a "boom" previous to the quake.
“The epicentre is 21 kilometres west-northwest of Saint Hyacinthe and that’s about 37 kilometres from Montreal,” Ms. Bent said in an interview from Ottawa.
