Earthquake

We aren't known for our earth movements here in good old Toronto but this morning at 9:45 a.m., there was a 4.8 magnitude earthquake.
It's not the first time I have felt an earthquake. Around here, they are mild, and not everyone feels it. I was just sitting here on my couch, beside one of my cats and as she woke up to clean herself, I felt the house vibrate. I thought about it and realized it was an earthquake because there isn't any construction outside. It was the same feeling as before. I think this makes 3 so far, for me.

  3. A bit of a spooky feeling isn't it!
    Glad it was a mild quake.
    Just imagine what it must be like in an earthquake prone place like New Zealand or in the Pacific.

  6. Glad it didn't do too much in damage. I've been in areas that have had earthquakes but I've never felt one, just learn about them afterwards. I guess I'm not earth-quake-sensitive?!
