Earthquake!!

June 23, 2010 3 comments

Well, now that I know where this earthquake has reached (All the way from Quebec and Ontario, to NY, Ohio, Michigan and Vermont), what was the size?

Edit: Claims on the magnitude of the earthquake are estimated between 5.5 and 5.7 on the Richter scale.

Edit#2: Confirmed at 5.5 magnitude (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/US10/42.52.-80.-70.php).

The Richter Scale would estimate (Taken from Wikipedia):

5.0-5.9 Moderate Can cause major damage to poorly constructed buildings over small regions. At most slight damage to well-designed buildings. 800 per year

Earthquake

Anyone else feel the earthquake a minute ago around the Southern area of Ontario (GTA)?

Lasted about 10 seconds. Wasn’t that big, but was big enough to be felt. I’m interested in seeing how far this earthquake reached.

Edit: Earthquake felt all the way in Buffalo, Albany, and Pittsburgh!

Edit#2: Earthquake also felt in Montreal and Ottawa!

Edit#3: Felt near Lake Huron (Bruce County) and North Bay! Wow!

Edit#4: Reports of earthquake felt from Ontario to all the way in Michigan and Ohio!

Edit#5: Reaching all they way down to Vermont and Massachusetts?!
