12:57 am - Canada earthquake
 Whoa, earthquake in Canada north of Ottawa??  

"Windows at Ottawa's city hall shattered, and a brick chimney came apart at the nearby solicitor's building, dropping bricks that fractured both inside the fireplace and outside the building."

Are you serious?  Ottawa city hall is like, a 2 minute walk from Ottawa University campus, that's insane O__O  I hope everyone's ok, Canada doesn't get earthquakes often since we don't sit on any major fault lines (lucky us, compared to other places that have to deal with this kind of thing regularly) and I know I've never felt an earthquake.  It's creepy reading about a place you actually know and have walked past hundreds of times, it's even more worrisome when you know many of your friends and family live in the region.

Now I know Ontario is the centre of the world and all that, but *waves* Hi. There's a west coast in Canada and there is a pretty major fault line over here that does cause somewhat regular (small) earthquakes. Not to mention the fact that we're being told that we're overdue for "the big one" any time now. Quebec gets a lot as well. So yeah, Ontario may not have any major fault lines, but Canada does.

But compared to places like Japan one doesn't usually associate Canada with earthquakes. By major I meant active and regularly likes to take the people that live there for a roller coaster ride.

actually there's a pretty active fault line along the st. laurence river and near lake ontario and erie. also, there was an earthquake in ottawa a few years ago, maybe four or five.
there are mini quakes in quebec all the time, and i second skye fall's comment about the west coast.. i'm really worried for them.

anyhoo, the shaking was not too bad, just thought something exploded (gas explosion, furnace, what-have-you). my work building was rumbling and undulating a bit.
