An earthquake has struck a wide area west of Ottawa.
Earthquakes Canada reports the 4.8 magnitude quake was centred in Braeside, Ont., northwest of the capital.
Twitter erupted with reports of buildings shaking in Ottawa for several seconds.
The tremor was also felt at least as as far away as Toronto.
Ontario Provincial Police in Arnprior, Ont., not far from the epicentre, say they have received no reports of damage.
Nothing here in Texas.
Reports I’m seeing are magnitude 5.0. 34 miles NW of Ottawa.
AP: “Women and Minorities hurt most”
I think Leaf fans are still in mourning from their choke against the Bruins that they didn’t even notice it.
Was it in both French and English?
Le shake, le rattle.
Let’s all blame fracking.
Or global warming.
I felt it in Syracuse.
Isn’t that on the Canadian Shield? The most stable rock on Earth?
Had a 2.something in Virginia a couple days ago. News said there had been 400-500 aftershocks since the one in Aug 2011
Canada ping list worthy?
I was in the car, so I didn't feel a thing, but my daughter said it started out sounding like a helicopter coming in, and then the floor was shaking.
Our last 5.2 was 3 years ago June.
To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.
