OTTAWA - Buildings shook, people ran into the streets, and millions felt the earth shift beneath their feet in central Canada today. A magnitude five earthquake, centred north of Ottawa, shook up the nation's capital today and was felt from Montreal to Windsor. There were no serious injuries, but there is damage, especially at the epicentre in rural Quebec. Even in a place like Vancouver Island, where earthquakes are not entirely unexpected, the rumbler that hit southern Ontario and Quebec today would have been a shock.
the fault line was in quebec but it was felt in ottawa too. (this is what happened 2 months ago but it might work in the video of life in a day)
Two earthquakes shook eastern Ontario and Quebec Friday morning, with tremors felt as far away as Barrie and Toronto. A 5.1 magnitude quake occurred near Shawville, Que., at 9:43 a.m., according to Earthquakes Canada. Ten minutes later, an earthquake shook Braeside, Ont, near Arnprior. Braeside is located roughly 75 kilometres west of Ottawa. The current data was automatically detected and seismologists are now working to confirm the specifics of the earthquake's magnitude, said a spokesperson from Natural Resources Canada. "Sometimes there are minor adjustments made. It could have been a 5.1 or a 5.0, that kind of thing," he said. A 5.1 magnitude earthquake is rarely powerful enough to cause any damage.
