Copy/paste from IM:

6/23/2010 1:46:49 PM L. Pony: you know how it feels in a car when someone is rocking side to side?

6/23/2010 1:46:59 PM Tsurashi: yeah

6/23/2010 1:47:09 PM L. Pony: it felt like that in the house, and nigel started to growl.

Earthquake Shakes Ithaca
No damage immediately reported
An earthquake this afternoon has impacted parts of Upstate New York, including Ithaca. The quake was reportedly felt throughout Central and Western New York for about 10 to 15 seconds. There are no immediate reports of damage in the area.

According to the Globe and Mail the earthquake was centered in Canada and has been felt as far away as Ohio and Michigan. The most recent significant earthquake in the area was in 2002 when a 5.1 magnitude quake occurred near Plattsburgh, New York in the Adirondacks.

The USGS has confirmed a 5.5 magnitude earthquake occurred at 1:41 this afternoon, centered near the Quebec/Ontario border in southern Canada, about 40 miles north of Ottawa. WVBR will bring you more on the story as it develops.

OK, this is unacceptable. The reason I will never ever return to California is because you can't count on the ground staying put where it belongs. I will NOT tolerate this kind of foolishness in MICHIGAN!

Canada, if you are going to get all wobbly on me, keep it on YOUR SIDE of the border, got it?!


  1. Just think of it this way--one small earthquake. Or four tornadoes in one night. You choose. Fortunately for us; tornadoes went north us and south of us. Not so fortunate for those in the path. Sucks. (and we have had a couple quakes, too. Small, but....just weird.)
