    That's a decent shaker if you're close to it, and 38 miles from Ottawa is close.

    Felt it rather strongly in Northwest Ohio. Apartment was shaking. It's the first time I've ever felt one. I'm not going to lie, it was kind of cool.

    Go #earthquake on Twitter and try and keep up.

    Apparently as far East as Ottawa and Montreal and down in parts of the US

    I felt it here in the Toronto 'burbs. My chair started shaking and the walls were creaking. Really freaky. Thought nothing of it until I threw on CP24 on the office TV and they were talking about it. Buddy of mine works downtown and he emaield to say they evacuated his building.

    This is weird but I didn't feel anything. And I'm about ten kilometres from Huggy's office. HC's office is about five kilometres away and she felt it.

    Yep. I'm not too far outside Cleveland and I felt it. GF is in upstate NY right now and she felt it there, too.

    I wonder if there'll be a tsunami on the fake lake at the G20 site.

    Didn't feel the quake, but many others in metro Detroit said they did.
