Did you feel it? Two earthquakes happen under Lake Ontario this past week. The first one, last Friday May the 4th, measured 1.5 on The Richter Scale, while an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.4 occurred this past Tuesday the 8th.
Although there are no major fault lines in the Northeast and eastern Canada, there are some minor fault lines that do cross Lake Ontario. If any of these lesser fault lines move, earthquakes can still occur in this region. The Central-Metasedimentary fault line was as the one closet to Tuesday’s earthquake.
While people in some Canadian towns felt the earthquake, there was no reports of injuries or damage due the earth’s movement. That’s good news!
