It isn't. Hence why I'm surprised that over here in Brampton, I felt it too.

My first earthquake, at 18 years old.

Not really, most people say it was their 1st, the average strength of a quake is around 3, this one is about twice as strong. Its not my 1st, when I was living in another country for 8 years they had stronger quakes.

Why so many earthquakes, recently?

In before conspiracy theorists correlate increased earthquake activity with a rising epidemic of obesity?

Nope you're right, earthquakes are very rare in canada.

In Montreal we felt it at maybe 2/10 max.

Wasn't that bad, I actually wasn't sure it was an earthquake until my gf told me about it.

This is actually the 1st I've heard of quakes here myself.

If there was a statistically significant increase in the number of earthquakes, people who know more about earthquakes than me and you put together and then cheekily multipled by five whilst no-one was looking would be writing articles saying, "There are a lot of earthquakes in 2010".

If you find one, let me know. The only ones I've seen so far by said people say things like, "There are not a lot of earthquakes in 2010, this is totally normal" – indicating that it's just a bit about where some of them have struck, and a bit (in some cases) that the media, or at least NF, is getting "report every goddamn earthquake" fever.

Who else was violently masturbating when this happened? I'm about a mile away from Toronto and I felt an itty bitty shake for like 30 seconds max.

Might be surprising in Eastern and Central Canada, but here in BC? We're on a MAJOR fault line here.

2x as strong is a statement that requires clarification. Due to the nature of earthquakes, there are perceived strenghts and actual strengths, actual strength being rated by a logarithmic scale. A 6 earthquake, which you seem to say was experienced, is 1000x stronger than a 3 earthquake. not 2x :notrust

Earth Quakes always happen in Canada, it's just that you don't feel them. Canada is one of the most geological areas on earth and positioned rightly so, for it's large land mass. I think the fact that Canada is more settled, moreso, than other areas, we see less larger magnitude earth quakes. At least that's what I recall from the documentaries I've recently seen.

Yeah, I felt it. I had just finished taking a bath and I was drying off when it hit.

I'm glad that I didn't have to run out of the house naked.

It scared me though, since earthquakes rarely happen here. So at first it's like you don't even know exactly what's going on.

I don't remember there being a more powerful one here years ago. I remember feeling one when I was 15 but it wasn't anymore powerful than this one from what I remember.

I didn't feel it. :( Everyone else seems to have. I wasn't home at the time (actually I was outside on a path - maybe thats why I didn't feel it) but apparently the house shook for a minute or so. I know we had an earthquake back maybe 10 years ago (and I missed that one too!).

I was at work when it happened, near Pearson Airport. I work in a seven floor building and the entire building was shaking for like 30 seconds.

After it was over, we had to evacuate the building until it was deemed safe to go back in.

I wonder what would happen if all the children in china and india jumped up and down at the same time.....


I'm glad everything, for the most part, has turned out ok. Earthquakes occur around where I live, but for now, they are never major.

We often have Earthquakes in South Central PA. None of them are ever big, they mostly just knock shit off the walls and shelves.

This earthquake was so strong that I slept through it. It was something like 1000 km from Toronto. The Canadian Shield must transmit the energy quite well.

Pitchfork gives the #earthquake a 5.5, calls it "derivative, clearly influenced by more seminal eastern quakes."

Now to deal with our media freakstorm over it and the guv spending a billion dollars to research earth and stuff.

I didn't even realize it was an earthquake until my glass full of water started shaking in front of me then i looked around to see everything else shaking as well, reminded me of that scene in Godzilla where there sitting in the cafe and the the water starts shaking.

i was laying in bed thinking, i wish my brother would stop jumping up and down, he's shaking the whole damn house.

as a friend of mine said: So lets recap. Volcano in Iceland. Meteor Shower in MidWest states. Silver Surfer hole in South America. Oil Disaster in the Gulf. Not to mention Chili and Haiti...and finally today earth quake in one of places in the world least likely to have a natural disaster...Check: I miss anything

It is when we never get earthquakes here to begin with really.

I didn't freak out and leave my house. Neither did my sister.

You can't blame people though. I mean when this kind of thing rarely happens here....naturally people will freak out.

considering we've got the G8 and G10 summits going on, with half of toronto shut down with swat teams and major streets closed down, major office buildings boarded up all for security purposes, then throw on a freak earthquake, i can just imagine what was going through there heads.

A member mentioned it was his/her first earthquake. I was surprised that it happened up in Canada.
