That WAS an Earthquake!!!

Was that an earthquake I just felt up in Richmond Hill, Ontario? Lasted about 30 seconds.

Confirmed! Yes it was.

I was on a conference call with colleagues in Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver and Mississauga and it was felt in Montreal at the same time!

Reports indicate this quake hit between 5.0 on the Richter scale. The epicentre was confirmed to be Gatineau, Quebec.

One update on twitter came in from downtown Toronto where someone felt the quake as they saw President Obama’s helicopter pass his building on the way to the G20.

Can this be blamed on the G20.

This quake was felt in Southwestern Ontario, Montreal, New York and down through Virginia.
