Yeah, I felt it all right, I live near Montreal. Glad to know it wasn't just my imagination... And glad to meet a fellow Canadian.

Tnx ..

Now USGS downgrade earthquake to M 4.4 also depth to 10 km, GFZ and EMSC say M 4.9 I think also because that distance what people felt all the way to NY state and Toronto ..

4.4 19km NNE of Shawville, Canada 2013-05-17 15:43:22+02:00 9.8 km deep; earthquake.usgs.gov...

Is there a lot of fracking in the area?

Oklahoma has quite a bit and small tremblers seem to be increasing.


I don't know much about this but I tend to think not. If anywhere, Newfoundland is the new fracking frontier. They have giant amounts of shale oil there, but I don't think they have started to exploit it yet.

That stands to reason as well, because it wasn't nearly the shaker that the one in 2010 was.

Actually I live over 650 km away and i felt it, it was a gentle shake and slight dizzyness. I also felt the one in the same region last year and the one that was in west virginia. Funny that they both happen around the same time of year, i think the one in Quebec last year was in June though.

2 Quakes? I thought i felt 2.
News



Two earthquakes near the Ontario-Quebec border could be felt across both provinces this morning. Earthquakes Canada reported the first event as a 5.1-magnitude quake 21 kilometres northeast of Shawville, Que. Earlier, the quake had been reported as originating near Braeside, Ont., about 75 kilometres west of Ottawa. The second event came 10 minutes later near Braeside and registered as a 4.2-magnitude quake. Residents in eastern Ontario and west Quebec said the shaking latest 30 seconds.

Not normally, every few years for a small rumble.
thats why im wondering about the sun now more than ever.

It has to be connected


Well, not necessarily but anytime energy is added to the system it can raise chances of an earthquake a little. The Hurricane that hit the east coast shook the whole north American continent, adding energy to the earth for a while. I'm sure that the event caused quickening of the earth and added to small quake numbers temporarily. I would think that the tornadoes and storms down in Texas possibly could have had more of an impact on setting off the quake myself. The sun could add energy to the atmosphere though, possibly helping to increase the size of those storms, things are all tied together when it comes to energy added to the planet. Someday, maybe a hundred years from now, they may have enough information to predict things better. That is if they open their minds and look at things better.

I wonder how much the water in the great lakes shook from this. I bet it absorbed a lot of this shock.

its an interesting thought, i have to agree with it. those lakes are deep, some points are over a mile deep.

They might be sloshing around for a while. Harmonic resonances could occur and slowly build up to a wet day in Toronto . . . but probably not.

Or a wet day in my area, just the other side of the pond.....but im more thinking what if the plates opened and the lakes drained............that would be weird.

Update from Earthquake Canada.

Friday May 17, 2013
Local Time: 09:43:23 EDT
Magnitude: 5.2 MN

www.earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca...


Less than 10 minutes later, a 4.2-magnitude aftershock was also recorded.

The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting a 5.0 magnitude earthquake that originated 25 kilometres north-northeast of Shawville, Que. It was five kilometres deep, according to the USGS website.

The quake was felt in Toronto, Ottawa, Barrie and even Huron, Ohio, according to tweets.

The last earthquake in the area was a 5.0 magnitude in June 2010.

This is weird...

The earthquake map shows that there were 3 different quakes all in the same area, all right around the same time ?



Friday May 17 2013, 13:43:23 UTC 69 minutes ago - mag 5.1 (21.0 km depth)
Friday May 17 2013, 13:43:22 UTC 69 minutes ago - mag 5.0 (5.0 km depth)
Friday May 17 2013, 13:43:22 UTC 69 minutes ago - mag 4.9 (2.0 km depth)


Can this be right ??

Natural Resources Canada reports two quakes, one being an aftershock. Maybe there was another aftershock that hasn't made it to their page yet.

When I was a kid, my uncle who lived in Detroit, used to joke with us little ones, down by the river watching the boats go by, about "pulling the plug" in the Detroit River so all the boats ran aground.

Thanks for posting.

I live in Cantley, Quebec (about 20 minutes from Ottawa) and I certainly felt it over here.

This is my day off so I was still asleep at the time but it woke me right up, the house was shaking a bit and I could hear glasses clinging in the cupboard.

My cat had his tail all puffed up, and my dogs were quite nervous as well. Just before the aftershock, my littlest dog kept on growling and barking.

We did have another quake in the region in the last couple of days also... Unless it was a big truck driving in front of my home but it really felt like a small quake. 2-3 days before this one.
