A 5.8-magnitude earthquake centred in Virginia rattled the East Coast Tuesday afternoon, shaking buildings in cities as far north as Toronto.
Canadians from London, Ont. to Ottawa to as far east as New Brunswick reported that they felt the afternoon quake.
Seismologist Allison Bent of Earthquake Canada said the earthquake's epicentre was too far away to cause any damage in Canada.
