Every time this happens, I think way too much about the 1996 World Cup and a certain goalie.

So it was a dream (nightmare)? Nice. I should have known such nefarious goalkeeping could never exist in reality.

I always manage to sleep through these little rumbles. Guess it helps to live in a basement appartment.

I got up thinking my daughter fell off the bed and then felt my house shaking. I don't even want to think about those 6-7 some areas feel

Actually 4.5 is not a little rumble. It's considered a moderate earthquake according to Richter. Epicenter in St-Hyacinthe got really rocked.

Minor Montreal-area quakes common

CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe, who is also a seismologist, said the Montreal region has approximately one earthquake every five days, but most are too weak to be felt.

Before Wednesday, the most recent tremor of significant magnitude in the area was a 3.0 last Thursday located about six kilometres north of Huntingdon, a small community southwest of Montreal near the U.S. border. Three other earthquakes since Sept. 15 have been felt in Quebec, according to Natural Resources Canada.

Because the Montreal area is far from the edge of any tectonic plates, earthquakes tend to be less concentrated but can be felt over hundreds of kilometres.

Small aftershocks may be possible, Wagstaffe warned.

According to the United States Geological Survey the two most damaging earthquakes in the region happened in 1935 and 1732.

A quake with magnitude between 2 and 3 is the lowest normally perceptible to humans. A magnitude 5 quake is considered moderate.

Come to think of it I did wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. That said, once awake I didn't hear or feel a damn thing.

It's a little rumble when your appartment is below ground level.

Now that you mentionned it, could very well have happened.

In fact, it probably needs to be checked now! I wouldn't use it for a few days... I'm so glad I rarely have to go to the South Shore, the transit to there is so dangerous these days, and hard/long in traffic...

tell me about it

I have yet to feel an earthquake. They always seem to happen at night and they never woke me up (I live in a basement). I also missed this one because I'm in the rockies at the moment. I wish I had felt it, though

Oh crap. Last week I was arguing with my completely insane boss that Quebec is a very ''earthquake free'' place (as part of an argument about Gentilly nuke plant. believe it or not he believes there could be a tsunami in the saint lawrence ). Anyhow he's probably thinking this is all linked to the 2012 doomsday prophecies and that the continent is going to divide in the next few days... can't wait to hear about all of that this afternoon

Felt it in Chateauguay, thought it was a big truck or something. I counted 34 consecutive Facebook statuses in a row. Twitter was bumping too.

I think the real damage done by this is the awful jokes I had to sift through.

Being in a basement when it happened plus the fact that all lights when out, in the appartment and in the streets. For a second I believed it was either a bomb or a comet. Really spooky.
