ICQ: # 1 Posted on 24.2.06 1953.57 Reposted on: 24.2.13 1954.26 Ok, so it was probably like a 1.0 or less. But I swear we just had an earthquake here in Ottawa like half an hour ago! What's crazy is that me and my roommates are not only expecting more, we actually WANT more. Any other W's from Eastern Ontario (or the US equalilvent) feel something? Promote this thread!

It would certainly have been more than that - I was told by a geologist once that if an earthquake or tremor measures 3.5 or below, you probably won't feel it.

When I came back in, the room was yakking about an apparent earthquake that I'd somehow failed to feel. I'm guessing the snow and ice was plenty to keep me off balance.

ICQ: # 6 Posted on 26.2.06 0035.00 Reposted on: 26.2.13 0035.24 It's all new to me. I'm from the redneck belt, we don't get no earthquakes, just a bunch of snow. Now a running gag is us pounding on the floor of our house (all six of us) yelling "EARTHQUAKE!!!". Well, WE find it amusing. The neighbors probably don't though.
