.. either we just had one here (I'm in Toronto).... or someone ate a huge burrito for breakfast
Here is where I keep track of seismic activity: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/
So far, they are not showing anything for your area, but results are not immediate.
Wow, it was a 5.5 magnitude. Supposedly they felt it as far away as Detroit, Cleveland, Boston and Springfield. I don't live too far from Springfield, but didn't feel anything.
I heard N America gets a lot of quakes but nothing major..maybe that will change hope not. My children and family are around Toronto.
Just spoke to my son who lives in Boston. He did not feel anything. But then again, maybe that's just him.
Didn't feel it here in California-- but then we are used to them and sometimes don't notice anything under 6.5
5.5? That's considered an aftershock in Cali not an earthquake.
Yup, felt my chair move at work. They are now saying it was 5.0.
Gee, I'm only a couple hours from Chicago, but didn't feel anything....
I just spoke to a friend in Toronto, he lives on the 15th floor in his condo building, he said he felt the building sway, it was felt in Ottawa and Montreal as well. Detroit, Columbus Ohio and Albany New York reported some shake rattle and roll. Yikes
Supposedly a couple of buildings collapsed at the epicenter but no one was hurt.
I live in Chicopee, Mass and there were reports of some people within my town who felt it. There are also reported calls from several surrounding towns/cities, where it was felt.
I didn't feel anything.
Didn't feel anything in South Central Indiana. Reports said that some of northern Indiana felt it.
I was rocking my chair while watching the England game with my cousin, and all of a sudden some cushions which we separated on top of my dog's cage (because we're painting) started to shake.
My cousin first looks at the cushions then at me, and goes like "dude you're making those cushions shake! I can feel it from here!". And I was like, how the hell am I doing that, I'm barely moving the chair.
I thought I was just plain awesome. The cushions were shaking like crazy (I didn't feel it though). Then, I was like "I'm gonna freak my brother out when he gets home by doing this trick".
So I tried it again after the cushions stopped shaking a few seconds later, but I couldn't get them to shake at all, even when I rocked the chair violently. I thought I was just handicapped.
That proved to be true when, a few minutes later, my mom calls and asks "did you feel the earthquake?". I was like "oooooooh.... yeah", and things became a lot clearer then.
Moral of the story: things don't shake when you're 5 metres away from them and you're just rocking a chair.

Got up this morning to this unbelievable racket that sounded like about 100 crows. It's twelve hours later and they are still at it. As near as I can tell, it isn't 100 after all, it's just a few, and they seem to be...

We had huge power surges last night and even though I have a regulator, it seems to have blown my new one month old dvd player, the wii and of course the light bulbs. Luckily, the TV will still switch on, but the...
