    tremblement de terre/earthquake - 4.5 - Montréal 0ct 10 2012

    Just happened./ je viens de le ressentir 30 minutes avant / ago

    Un séisme de magnitude 4,5 frappe la région de Montréal


    Un séisme de cette ampleur est d'ailleurs peu susceptible de causer des dommages. Le dernier tremblement de terre d'importance au Québec a eu lieu au Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean le 25 novembre 1988. Il avait été de magnitude 5,8.

    Only news in english at this time from CBC is :
    Magnitude 4.5 earthquake hits, centred near Longueuil. Did you feel it? Any damage to report? #cbcmtl

    I'm curious as to the duration? Anything knocked off the shelf?

    No big deal. The people staying at my hotel complain about the same thing to hotel management whenever i'm in the city. They fail to realize that it's not an earthquake: it's just the Doc entertaining.

    Nope nothing off shelves ... really nothing
    But I went throught all the house to check if everything was good !
    Especially furnace and ... oil tank... I have to get rid off this last one soon !!!
    About duration I would say between 5 and 10 seconds... Enough to realize "Oh... hahem looks like an earthquake!"

    Exclamation

    It was around 12:20 am that I heard a loud bang while drifting off to sleep. Followed by some good shaking for a few seconds. It is good to occasionally be reminded that the earth under us is not just passive static rock. It can surprise us although thankfully not as much as in Japan and other places on fault zones.

    I live on the South Shore and was calmly seated, watching television. It first started by a progressively increasing vibration for a few seconds, then I heard a big bang and my sofa was shakened; after the bang, the vibrations rapidly decreased. Total duration: about 5 seconds. I immediately thought about an earthquake but I also remembered about the big bang from an hydrogen reservoir explosion from a Montreal East refinery who produced a similar bang and vibration.

    I just thought that for once if someone was having sex at that moment the girl could truthfully answered that if was a earthshaking feeling if the guy asked ''how was it ? '' loll

    I felt it last night. I was watching a movie and thought my subwoofer might have been turned up too high so I muted the volume but it continued. Lasted for a good 10 maybe 15 seconds I guess. Nothing fell over or rattled but I felt the vibration and heard a low rumble. It sounded like a heavy snow plow going by after a light snow fall.
    And the Lord said unto John, "Come forth and receive eternal life." But John came fifth and won a toaster.

    C'est vrai que le plus interessant n'est pas de savoir ce que les gens ont pensé a ce moment la, mais plus d'apprendre ce que plein de gens différents font a la même seconde exactement... Ca donne un peu le vertige de penser a toutes ses vies qui se déroulent en parallele de la notre...
