So I'm sitting on the toilet when all of a sudden it starts to shake back and forth. I asked the wife if she was doing laundry, "No". I can't hear any large trucks going down the street, a friend that's on the phone with the wife says their building is swaying too.

Total time, 10 seconds. Damage: None, at least not here. Didn't even knock pictures off the walls.

Internet search doesn't really pull anything up yet aside from it being felt in Buffalo NY.

Another friend of ours who is in Toronto and works for the Ministry of the Environment said he felt it too and the phones are lighting up with calls, he assumes it's about the tremor.

So, did anyone else fell this?

Ok it wasn't just me. I was in the garage sitting on the steps. The garage door is open and it starts rattling. I thought there was a heavy wind shaking it but then my steps shook. That's when I thought "wth, could this be an earthquake?" It lasted longer than 10 secs since my door was rattling for about 15-20 secs before my arse rattled on the steps, then my door still rattled after my butt stopped.

I didnt know that they had earthquakes in Ontario...

Being California born & bred, I rarely even notice anything under a 4.0

Ok.. Here's the scoop. After installing an earthquake app on my ipod... the location of the quake was north of Ottawa, it was a 5.5 and was felt from Montreal to Toronto.

The radio said it was just confirmed that central Canada was hit by an earthquake 5.5 magnitude so we don't have to change Puz's diet.

Wait... There are fault lines over there? I thought that entire area was in the middle of tectonic plate.

BOG, that was the most annoying thing I have ever had to endure, and I once watched a whole Teletubbies episode. - Hobo

And how do we know that Puz's diet wasn't responsible for a 5.5 quake?

No more fiber for you buddy...

It was about 40 miles north of Ottawa, about 160 miles from me.

Now we also have to watch for tornadoes....

I actually originally was going to look for a tornado when my garage door began shaking. I have never been in an earthquake before. I thought it was a huge low pressure zone when my walls shook a bit.

But we're God's country and God built Eden. The rest of you came from lava. We aren't used to this. :)
