    I didn't feel a single thing! Ugh! I love that stuff! All my friends have a story about feeling the shaking, or furniture moving! I was cutting grass for a client, and felt nothing but the lawnmower. icon_cry.gif

    I work in Kanata (just outside of Ottawa). I was mulling over an e-mail for like an hour. When I finally sent it, i thought to myself, "Someone's not going to be happy when they read this...".
    A moment later, earthquake. I thought, "Are you shitting me??"

    I also decided it was a good idea to go outside when I saw this columbian woman 2 cubes from me grab her purse and bolt through the emergency doors.

    I didn't feel a think, but I heard that a couple of buildings in Boston (35 miles east of me) were evacuated.

    It wasn't as strong here in Toronto as it was in Ottawa, but still, my building got a good shaking. Never been in an earthquake before...I was surprised at how squishy and wiggly it felt, kinda like being in a boat.

    Literally a couple of buildings. I was in a meeting in Boston and didn't feel or notice anything.

    Noticed a slight shake here in Oshawa (30-45 mins east of Toronto)
    Apparently it originated up north of Ottawa in Quebec

    Totally felt it here in Montreal for about 30s while I was at work. I work really west on the island, so it may have been stronger than downtown. Our building just vibrated and everyone came out into the hallway.

    What's cool was that 5mins after when we googled it, there were already news reports about it!
    My first earthquake icon_biggrin.gif

    Really? A 5.0? I'm sure everybody's just fine other than a cute little rattling.

    Was in my living room when I felt the floor shaking. Then the lamp and photos on my side table started shaking. Very odd experience.

    Edit: Wish I was in bed with a really hot guy when it happened. You know I would have taken credit for making the earth move.icon_lol.gif

    I work in a hospital and the tons of paperwork that I was filing fell over on to me. No injuries or anything but kind of scary for a few seconds.

    I'm in Saint-Lazare, outside of Montreal and on the road to Ottawa. Didn't feel it personally, but my train was cancelled because of it :-(
    I was sitting there waiting for the train to take off, when the conductor walked through the cars and told us that there had been an earthquake and that all the bridges and highways needed to be inspected before the train could leave. I was driving to the train station when the earthquake hit and never felt a thing.

    This was so lame... it dominated the news the entire day. CP24 had to go and interview every crazy person in the Downtown Core of Toronto and ask them if they 'felt it.'

    It was like a big news cluster-fuck.

    Rawrly saidAll of my friends in Ottawa are fine. Nothing major. One nearly pee'd his pants because he works on the top floor of one of the tallest office buildings.

    So that's like the third floor?
