Hey was hanging out at home and all of a sudden the appartment building SHOOK and starting swaying slowly. Lasted under a minute. Reports are saying it was a 5.5 and felt as far as Toronto and Ohio...

YES! We had to go outside because of the structure of our house it got too unstable (like a 15ft window).

Telus phones aren't working properly now either... it lasted like 25-30 seconds here.


See profile for our K-1 Visa/AOS story from 2010-2011Apparently we love USCIS/NVC so much we left and are doing it again! This time giving IR-1 a whirl. Rock on immigrators.

07/17/2014 check cashed by USCIS

12/30/2014 Case received by NVC

Wow.. seriously? I felt it but I thought I was going crazy, or that the cat was running around (she literally shakes the floor sometimes). But I looked around and pretty sure she was asleep. My chair was wobbling. It was the weirdest thing.

My brother felt it - he is in Stittsville. 5.5 is pretty big for that area. I remember there were 4 earthquakes that I experienced when living in Ontario - one in Ottawa in 1979, one in St. Catharines in the early 80s and 2 in Chatham, the last one being in 2000 or 2001 I believe. Earthquakes happen there fairly often but are seldom strong enough to feel. I remember the last one it felt like a huge transport truck was driving past the office the way everything shook. The most damage I ever heard about was pictures falling off of the wall. Still, this one today was a good one.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Crazy stuff! I was just talking to my mom about it, and she said the couch started moving while she was sitting on it. She thought she was having a medical emergency of some kind... :lol:

Tornado's too? What a wild day in Ontario!
