Earthquake

Wow, there was an earthquake in Canada a couple of minutes ago. The first one for me. Here in Toronto it lasted around 10 to 20 seconds. Everything was wobbling for a bit.

The epicenter was somewhere North of Ottawa and it was felt even across the border in the States. According to the U. S. Geological Survey site, it's magnitude is 5.5.

No reports of damages so far.

See, I told you the world is going wonky...

Thanks Delilah and Angel.

There was also a tornado that hit a town called Midland, way up north of Toronto, the same afternoon. Property damage, but no serious injuries.
