Earthquake felt in Montreal and Ottawa, Canada
We see a sudden surge in visitors from Canada. If you are one of those people and have felt an earthquake, please let us know what you have experienced.
It appears that the quake has been felt in the Montreal area.
To follow up what happened, please read the many experiences below. Thanks to the Canadian people for their swift sharing of experiences.
Update 09:18 UTC : still no seismological values from USGS
Update 09:26 UTC : Canadian sources are reporting via automatic instrument readings : Automatic detection of seismic event: magnitude 4.4 - 6 Nov 4:05 EST - HAWKESBURY, ON region.
Based on these preliminary readings this can be considered as a rather strong shaking related to the area where it occurred. The depth of this earthquake is unknown at the moment and is the most important trigger to predict whether (very slight) damage might have occurred. Very slight damage means in this case : cracks in walls, fallen objects inside houses, slight rooftiles and chimney damage.
Update 09:41 UTC : Canada seems to be a huge distance for the USA seismographs as we have no values yet from USGS. This happened in their so called backyard :)) . The Candian sources have now released a report with a Magnitude of M4.2, no depth stipulated
Update 09:59 UTC : Both EMSC and USGS are reporting a Magnitude of  3.7 at a depth of 15.7 km (USGS) and 16 km (EMSC). Natural Resources Canada is maintaining his value at M4.2

2 strong earthquakes off the coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia
2 consecutive strong earthquakes occurred just north of Sumalata, Sulawesi, Indonesia. Due to the distance to the coast, these earthquakes can luckily be called harmless.  The earthquakes have nevertheless led to a moderate (normally non-damaging) moderate shaking (MMI V) for 26000 people. 1.3 million people have felt a light shaking and 582000 people a weak to very weak shaking. Double equally strong earthquakes are not happening very often, but do occur here and there.
BMKG, the Indonesian seismological agency, who has a lot of equipment installed in Sulawesi reported  for the first earthquake a Magnitude of M5.7 at a depth of 10 km and for the second M5.7 at a depth of 17 km.

  • Mcleod Ganj, Dharamasala - Just before 6.om last night (6 Nov) shaking for a few seconds.Seemed worse as i was in a flimsy wooden shop where all the glass doors of the cabinets rattled quite dramatically. Many people outside didn't seem to notice and it lasted a few seconds only. There have been reports of several tremors like this over the last few weeks.
  • Pequannock, nj - we just had a mild quake in Ringwood, NJ 2.0 my son and I were talking about it and he said that early this morning around 4am the floor he was sleeping on was bouncing and he felt the building move. He was sleeping at a friends house. I googled earthquakes with todays date and found this site with this data. crazy!
  • Huntington Beach, CA - I definitely felt an earthquake last night around 9:41PM. I can't find any record of it anywhere either. I know of 5 other people who felt it in different areas - and I saw people tweeting and facebooking they felt it. But it's not listed here. It felt like a sudden jolt, my dog freaked out, and then it was over. At first I thought a car ran into my home. But it was just a jolt and then a slight shake and it was over.

    Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
    If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
    For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news.

    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    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).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    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.

      At 4:00am in Cornwall Onatrio I was finishing up my Cheesecakes when I felt a rumbling feeling beneath my feet that lasted roughly 10-15 seconds! It was intense as I felt unstable during that time! I knew it was an earthquake by the intensity of it:-( Just happy to know it wasn't worse rhen that!!

    2. They say that the magnitude was 4.2, but the tremors were much less pronounced than October 10 However, since October 10, about the same hour that the earthquake, if you are not partying or sleeping, there are 2 consecutive atmospheric vibrations to each day. Another intriguing fact: the vibration (shaking) followed the time change ... To date i have two witnesses who felt physically the same phenomenon.

    3. I woke to a very loud boom/bang, and moderate shaking of house, ratting of all things....that lasted about 10 sec.i told my bf that the epi center was here in our hometown Hawkesbury, sure enough only km away.

    4. It sounded like someone was blasting (around Dalkeith). I heard the "bang" buy nothing shook.

      I woke up by a big boom, the house was trembeling midley and some loud noise came from the outside. I ran to the window to check if a train was passing by but there was none. Everbody in the house was asleep, they didn't feel anything. I had to google to make sure...

      I'm a very light sleeper.. I woke up with heavy noise of shake . It was 4:04 am EST in Montreal. I took my phone and went on Google to check if anyone experienced a similar situation, but I didn't see any news. Here I am confirming that it was an actual earthquake
