3.9 Magnitude earthquake 9km from Beloeil, Canada.
The shallow depth of this earthquake, 9.9km, and the soil of this area made this earthquake felt a little stronger than usual and felt in a wider area. This earthquake, as people tell us, was felt for over 2 to 5 seconds and was followed by a huge noise. We are sure this earthquake although scary for the people living around, should not make damage or injuries.
Update: Both USGS and EMSC are giving a magnitude of 3.9 but Natural Resources Canada is giving a magnitude of 4.5… a big difference!
Update: The earthquake happened at 12:20a.m so a lot of people woke up, this “unusual” earthquake was also felt in the state of New York and Vermont, U.S.A.
-USGS shakemap shows a big area covered as a weak to light shaking (MMI III-IV), the earthquake could only cause light damage like cracked walls or chimneys around the
epicenter.
Update: USGS tectonic summary shows: “earthquakes cause damage in the zone about once a decade. Smaller earthquakes are felt three or four times a year”.

M4.8 earthquake near Shiraz, Iran.

An earthquake has occurred at shallow depth around 30km away from the city of Shiraz. The local agencies have given it a M4.8, whereas USGS has measured M5.2. No damage has been reported. However, some panic did ensue.

    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).

    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

      I was watching tv and i hear this loud sound, like a plane flying low over me. The sound then became bigger and closer. I was sure a plane was crashing over me. Then i heard this loud BOOM and thats when it shaked for about 3-4 seconds. I panicked. It’s not fun to feel so vulnerable.

      There was a loud BOOM followed by a back and forth type shaking,the electricity went off, emergency lighting etc. went on..then the electricity kicked back on..it was all quite fast. My cats were acting strangely earlier this evening and were noticeably shaken during and afterwards. At ffirst I thought something had hit the earth..that’s how loud that boom hit was. A lot of folks were outside in their pj’s checking things out.

      Old Montreal. Small shake followed by what felt like a large nearby explosion along with a longer and stronger shake that lasted about 12 seconds.. Total duration about 35 seconds. No aftershocks in almost an hour now..i can’t believe it’s just M3.9

    5. Ronnie Lavigne says:

      felt the building moving, seemed like side to side more than up and down.. lasted maybe 10 seconds.. pictures bouncing but remained on wall.. kinda felt like being on somewhat bumpy road ; )
