    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.

    You can go here for a map that shows quakes in real time.

    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.

    Felt it here on the Canada-US border. 5.5 magnitude.

    It's funny, as I was in the house all by myself and everything was rumbling and shaking. My sweetie came in after it was over. He was out in the front yard and didn't notice a thing.

    He tried to tell me it was the neighbors car. lol

    Is that area a place that normally gets quakes? Has there been any reports of any damage. Nothing on Fox news about it yet. Too much other stuff going on I guess.

    I live in north-suburban Detroit and didn't feel anything. Local TV stations are on live with reports from folks in the area who felt the shaker.
