Ya I was inside my house when it happened and my dog freaked. My TV almost fell too.
Yea same, my house shook as I was about to sit down, I was like "was that me?" and my dogs and cats were freaking out.
Longest I've ever felt since moving to Canada. They are sending everyone out of the mall!
Felt it, too. My aquarium water was splashing everywhere! haha. That was a little entertaining at least.
wowzah - thanks for confirming that the shaking wasn't something crazy happening downtown - we've now decided not to fun from our buiilding ! :)
Can you please tell more about the earthquake? I am away from home, I just want to know that it wasn't serious enough to damage anything. Thanks a lot!
My kids would like to say that my cat was playing and then the house started to shake. Apparently, according to my kids, the cat went crazy, running over all the of the place. Eldest figures it was a good time. Youngest didn't like.
Oi! That was unsettling.
I live in Prescott, Ontario and felt it all the way down here.
That was effing scary! Like a vibration! waaah
We work at the Ottawa Athletic club - our facility is under renovation so we are used to the building shaking - when this didn't stop and the two pools turned into waive pools we figured! earthquake!
holy f%^& I dunno where you guys are, but I'm outside of the Orleans area, and my house was SHAKING!!! I am almost literally shitting a chicken. Does anyone know why it just happened?!?!?!
It was strong enough in Ottawa west to rattle the dishes a fair bit. Just heard it was felt in Toronto and Vermont, so maybe at the epicentre it might have caused a fair bit of damage.
O.M.G. I have lived in Ottawa many years and felt trembles before but this was more than a tremble my house was shaking and moaning and I thought it was going to come down,my animals were all freaking too. Hope that is as big as it gets
To the person away from home:I don't think it was serious enough to damage anything. Nothing has been damaged in my area, though a few traffic lights aren't working.I'm hoping to hear more soon. That was quite a quake.
Thank you. I don't get home for another week and a half so it would be unsettling to think about coming home to chaos.
May be we should pay attention to mother earth and and stop all the drilling for oil and tearing down rain forests and all the other destructive things we do for greed. And realize she only has so much to give
wow, we felt it all the way down in upstate NY in the Rome/Utica area!
A couple people felt it here at work. I'm on a suspended floor so I'm used to it vibrating, but down the hall they sit on a slab and could feel it readily. Here in West Central Ohio.
