Earthquake in Aurora, Ontario, No Not Again

"Did you feel the earthquake?"

No, not again. Just about 25 minutes ago (1:52 pm, Aug 23, 2011) I felt the earthquake under my feet. I had windows open so at first I did not register. But then the wind cannot possibly shake my heavy dining table, heavy crystal vase, and the chandelier. No, it was not the wind. I get a really weird feeling when it comes to earthquakes. This is probably my fourth.

I reported on one last year, June 23, 2010. It was so strange to see my Matthew shaking in the bed: “An Earthquake Hits Aurora, Ontario“. And now I am paranoid to put him to sleep. I hope nothing bigger than last year happens. Apparently, there is a town somewhere close to Ottawa that gets them all the time.

No the airplane did not cause it

Furthermore, one hour later and I am still experiencing internal aftershocks.

I called my husband the same minute it happened. I needed confirmation. He answered the phone and the first thing he said was, “Did you feel the earthquake?” “Yes, I did,” I replied. He mentioned that he felt it pretty good, it was in Concord. Probably when it hit Aurora, it dissipated.

The origin this time came from Virginia. More data here…

An unusually strong magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck Virginia Tuesday afternoon, sending tremors along the East Coast of the United States,” FoxNews reported.

You felt it in Aurora? I work in south Aurora now and didn’t feel a thing. Weird.

Yes I did Michael. I noticed those who were standing did not really feel it. I think you have to be sitting down to feel the quake but I could be wrong.

Once again, the earth did not move for me…. I was at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, either walking the trail, or sitting at a chess table.

Kaslkaos, lol, usually if you stand it is hard to feel the earthquake, and those chess tables at the Fairy Lake are very sturdy, lol. May be next time.
