I am on the third floor in Springdale and didn't feel it. We are so close to 275 that I write off most shaking as traffic so I probably did and just ignored it.

I get the same feeling for a week every Christmas.

I have a friend that lives in Ottawa, Ontario. Said it caused a complete and utter panic up there.

AFP journalists witnessed walls in downtown office buildings shaking for several seconds. Cracks appeared in the Parliamentary Press Gallery building in Ottawa, and outside some people appeared shaken up, but unhurt.

Most downtown Ottawa buildings appeared to have been evacuated as alarms rang out.

A magnitude-5.0 earthquake struck at the Ontario-Quebec border region of Canada on Wednesday, shaking homes and businesses from Toronto to the states of New York and Michigan, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The midday quake was felt in Canada and in a number of U.S. states, including Michigan, Vermont and parts of upstate New York.

It's infintely better to have missed one than to have felt one

While this is 100% true, others felt it here and it caused zero damage here. Just would have been cool. Never want to feel an actual earthquake. Few things scare me more than the thought of a legit earthquake and me being involved.
