This happened a few years back in 2010 east of Ottawa. At the time back then we actually felt the earthquake and it rattled our windows, cupboards and
doors in our house 300 miles from the epicentre. I checked with friends near the Northland Power project in Marmora where they plan to put a billion
gallons of water on a tailings pile 100 feet in the air, and they said it looks like the tailings pile shed rocks (landslided a bit) again like in the
last quake. Apparently this was a pretty solid quake and was felt all the way to Cleveland.

PS. On that Northland Power Pumped Storage project in Marmora and earthquakes, the tailings piles apparently sit on the southeast corner of the town.
So if a rupture occurred of their "impenetrable asphalt lining" (their words not mine) on the northeast corner of the tailings pile which looks like
the weakest point, the town would be flooded by a billion gallons of water. Not a pretty situation since there are allegedly 4000 people in the area
and a damn that holds back an additional 6 billion gallons in Crowe Lake. The path of the water would travel down the Crowe River to the Trent Canal,
next stop Campbellford, Frankford and Trenton. I can imagine what a total of 7 billion gallons of water would do all because of an earthquake, bad
engineering and even worse planning all for greed. You can look up the Taum Sauk reservoir breach to see what a breach looks like, just put a town in
the middle of the water path.
