Well, no. The places where it is felt will radiate out from a point - the epicenter - which is in Quebec.


What you're suggesting is that we also experienced an earthquake here near Toronto. We didn't. Was just felt the shock as it radiated from the epicenter.

I thought that the 'epicenter' was right at Ottawa?

But yeah, I never felt a thing. Was too busy working my *** off outside in the blistering 31 + humidex heat. Sucked.

has anyone notice that the quakes are getting more frequent and spreading globally....
No. Reporting bias.
i wonder what that oil volcano in the gulf will do... could it cause a collapse of the sea floor and release a tsunami?
No.

Yes. It was about 35 miles away - in Quebec.

Indeed. I jumped to a conclusion after having read a list of east/west locations that felt it.

We were supposed to be able to feel it down our way, but I was probably out walking at that time so didn't feel it.
