    Cleveland really rocked today, for real

    5.0 quake in Canada felt in Northeast Ohio - Yahoo! News

    A 5.5 magnitude earthquake out of Ontario, Canada, was felt in Northeast Ohio and at least as far south as Cincinnati.

    I actually felt this quake. My son says he though someone had hit the house with a van or truck. I am looking for cracks in the foundation, and walls :eusa_pray:

    There is an large crack in one of the streets I travel on, on my way to work, that was NOT there when I went to work this morning

    The storm was very loud, but I didn't feel an earthquake and I'm only an hour south of Cleveland.

    5.0! :lol: That's a baby quake.

    I lived through the World Series Quake in the SF Bay Area and that was 7.1. The scale is exponential so a 5.0 is hardly a quake at all to those of us who have lived in California.

    Earthquake Strength - Earthquakes - Forces of Nature

    1989 Loma Prieta earthquake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Now that was an earthquake! The first time I ever "moved" during an earthquake and by the time it was done, I was under my desk.

    If you look at the wiki site the picture in the upper right hand corner is not of a wall, but of a collapsed freeway that I used to take all the time.

    The Haiti Quake last year was about the same size as the Loma Prieta Quake, but because of their infrastructure, they took the hit much harder than the SF Bay Area did.

    5.0? I kind of miss the vibrations. :)

    The armpit of Ohio.

    The quake must have been caused by underground nuke testing by Canada.

    Or maybe we have NK subs coming up the St. Laurence? :eek:
