Earth Quake

Been home about 10 minutes checking out the forum and all of a sudden the house starts shaking and continues for about a good 30 seconds. all of the neighbors are running out side yelling. me my girlfriend and her father are just sitting here doing our thing. her sister call my cell phone and tell me for us to get out of the house and i tell her no i'm on the computer right now. Were kinda use to them after living in Cali for so long. But it did add a little excitement to the evening...

Yeah- I use to live in so cal- earthquakes all the time. I got accustom to them and hardly thought twice. But if you were in a public place when one happened, you could always tell the tourist form the locals. the locals either don't stop talking or just kind of pause for just a second. But the out of towers were. Diving under the tables.

Having said that, I think a 5.1 might have got my attention.

Cool! There's re-bar in the concrete too? Is it just a side to side shake or vibration, and can you feel it going up and down too as the waves ripple by? Are you on the great fault and waiting for the big one?
We never get any earthquakes, tornadoes ar anything up here.
I have see a ghost though.

It was a side to side shake. The one i hated the worst in california was a rolling feeling really wierd one there. I was in hurricane hugo back in late 80's in moncks corner south carolina right out of charleston That was no fun at all.had over 200 pine trees on my 2.5 acres lost 99 of them in the storm 27 tornados were reported in the county. the ground was so wet i had 7 trees laid down on my roof and one crashed down on it causing some minor damage. i think the down trees probably held the roof on a tornado cut across my property about 30ft off the ground twisting off the portion of the trees over that height and went right over the house.When they say a tornado sounds like a train coming through thier right.Have a video somewhere of all the damage was a very unpleasant experiance

Invader,
When I had a farm near Hawkesbury, ON, we had an earthquake (1985...?). There's a plate running from Ottawa area east through Montreal (Mount Royal is an old volcano as are most of those hills running SE from it). Wouldn't surprise me if that plate doesn't also run NW towards the Kap.
I know at the time, that it was reported that the plate is quite extensive.

Thanks Eddie. Hawksebury is about 600 miles SE of Kap. (Some outsiders call it 'the Kap' but it's just 'Kap'.) There was a very slight tremor in late winter of 1981 or so, but I was riding the Kawasaki Drifter then and didn't feel it.
There actually are many small ones all over the place, especially in James Bay, and also out west and SE of here, but I've never felt one... What's really weird, is that James Cameron (Titanic, Terminator, Aliens, Avatar) was born right here in Kapuskasing.

In the last 5 years in northern Ontario; up to 4.2MN magnitude, some reported as felt:
