    Earthquake or something felt all through NYS and VT

    We were in basement cleaning and we heard a huge rumble. So we ran upstairs after the rumble was done to see what it was. Contacted local police and its under investiaion. Anyone else feel it?

    Hi fellow websleuthers!
    (I never thought this post was the one to get me out of 'lurkdom')
    I live in Quebec and felt it too. Our local radio station (98.5FM) just announced that it was a 5.7 magnitude earthquake centered about 5km from a town called Buckingham.

    I just read on another blog,that Ohio had a quake. Could it be the same one, or is it different?

    Canada Earthquake 2010: Toronto, Ottawa Report Ground Shaking
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_622783.html
    <snipped>
    A Canada earthquake shook Toronto and Ottawa at approximately 1:45 p.m. Eastern Time today, June 23, 2010. The USGS reports the quake had a magnitude of 5.5
    The quake was also felt by some as far away as Boston, Cleveland and Chicago.

    This is a developing story

    The future has many names: for the fearful it's the unknown, for the reckless it's the adventure, for the pessimists it's the unattainable. For the brave, it is opportunity.

    Earthquake

    I live in Rochester, NY and it shook us. My daughter is a therapist at Strong Hospital and she texted that they felt it there and it scared them all. I read that the shaking lasted about 10 seconds, a long time when you don't know what's happening!

    I also read it was felt in Buffalo, about an hour West of Rochester.
