Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa all felt it apparently. No word on the epicenter yet.

"The 2010 Ontario earthquake occurred on June 23, 2010 and was felt across the Greater Toronto Area and in Ottawa. The Globe and Mail noted that reports on Twitter "suggest the earthquake was felt as far away as Ohio, New York and Michigan". This quake occured within minutes of quakes occuring in South Carolina, Southern California, and Southern Maryland.[1]"

reports have the epicenter at the Quebec/Ontario border.

That's pretty much were our office building is located. Seriously felt like the floor was caving in. Scary shit for about 30 seconds there.

One aftershock and I'm outta here!

that wasn't that cool. it's a little freaky to start bouncing up and down on the 11th floor. no one knew what to think for those 10 secs. if it lasted any longer than that, there would have been panic.

people were visibly shocked from my office, though all those fire drills sure helped. no one hesitated to wait for an alarm...except for a couple of guys who were in the middle of eating their ribs from ribfest. They didn't want to abandon them.

OTTAWA — A strong earthquake rattled Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec Wednesday afternoon.

The epicentre of the quake was at Val des Bois, Que., according the the United States Geological Survey. The quake measured 5.5 and occurred at a depth of 19 kilometres, the USGS said.

There were reports the temblor was felt as far away as Columbus, Ohio and Flint, Michigan.

The quake struck at about 1:45 p.m. and lasted about 20 seconds.

Citizen reporters are monitoring the story as it unfolds. Check ottawacitizen.com for the latest details.

Pretty crazy being centred north of Ottawa and feeling it so strongly in Toronto... Mellie GArreth and I were at a Dr's appointment. The Dr was checking out our son when we looked at each other wondering why we were swaying back and forth on 2nd floor .
