Default Re: 5.5 Earthquake @ Ontario/Quebec border, felt as far as Ottawa/Pittsburg

Toronto — Globe and Mail Update Published on Wednesday, Jun. 23, 2010 1:46PM EDT Last updated on Wednesday, Jun. 23, 2010 2:03PM EDT

There are reports of an earthquake in various parts of Ontario and Quebec, including Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. The Toronto newsroom of The Globe and Mail shook just before 1:45 p.m. EDT. The Ottawa newsroom was evacuated at about 1:43 p.m.
Twitter users as distant as Springfield, Massachusetts and Traverse City, Michigan reported feeling tremors. A Globe reporter in Montreal said that city also shook.
The earthquake rattled buildings in Ottawa, where the streets are crowded with office workers who evacuated their workplaces.
An eyewitness saw items flying off the shelves at a pharmacy in Gatineau, QC.
“We felt the building shake. It was actually it was pretty serious. It was definitely the strongest quake that I ever felt,” said Dennis Choquette, a Globe and Mail online editor based in Ottawa.
The shaking lasted about 15 seconds, Mr. Choquette said.
The severity of the earthquake is not yet known. It is not yet known whether there have been any reports of injuries.
More to come
