5.0 "Earthquake" in Ottawa, Tremers felt all over Ontario and Quebec

First thing I thought was "what's the neighbor doing?"

I was shaving my face when it happened at around 1:45 pm yesterday, stuff on the walls were shaking, going up and down for about a minute. Then this morning I read the paper "Earthquake hits southern Ontario and Quebec" and I was like "oh so that's what that was". Now it seems as if the long inactive Seaway fault line is now active.

Joe, that map is about divides, not faults. It shows the major watersheds of North America, where the rainwater drains to.

oh, okay, here's the real map then.

Seismographs at the University of Pittsburgh were able to register the earthquake also.
