At approximately 1:45PM EST today, a magnitude 5.5 earthquake was felt along the borders of Ontario and Quebec. Part of southern Ontario felt the shake as well. All over my workplace, people are asking around if anyone felt it. I felt a bit of it but I was I was getting light headed from the heat. It wasn’t until a coworker from the upper floors asked me, that I realized that we were hit with an earthquake.
It’s been years since an earthquake hit Hamilton. When I was living at my parent’s, my neighbour came running out of the house because they felt something shaking. I was right next door but didn’t feel a single thing.
The Spectator is reporting that the Board of Education was evacuated because of the tremors.
