Strong Earthquake Felt Throughout Parts of Canada and the United States

This earth is really shaking all over the place in North America today. A strong earthquake was felt throughout parts of Canada and the United States, measured at 5.5.. People in Toronto, Ottawa, and other Canadian cities reported feeling the quake. But also people in the U.S. states of New York, Maine, Indiana, Detroit, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Illinois, New Jersey and Connecticut felt the earthquake.

I had just finished posting my previous article that concerns earthquakes and tsunamis and massive ocean fires that geologists are now warning could come about from a rupture or explosion from huge amounts of methane buildup and release from the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe. Then I felt it. I live in upstate New York, an area which rarely incurs an earthquake tremor, and I felt the earthquake from Canada shake my desk where I was sitting and the big window to the right of me. I live on the fourth floor so I immediately ran down the stairs to inquire if anyone else felt the building shake. One lady said yes, she felt it too.
