Earthquake in Aurora, Ontario, No Not Again

Earthquake in Aurora, Ontario, No Not Again

Aug 23, 2011
No not again. Just about 25 minutes (1:52 pm, Aug 23, 2011) ago I felt the earthquake under my feet. I had windows open so at first I did not register. But then the wind cannot possibly shake my heavy dining table and heavy crystal vase and the chandelier. No it was not a wind. I get really weird feeling when comes to earthquakes. This is probably my fourth.

I reported on one last year, June 23, 2010. It was so strange to see my Matthew shaking in the bed: An Earthquake Hits Aurora Ontario. And now I am paranoid to put him to sleep. I hope nothing bigger than the last year. Apparently there is a town somewhere close to Ottawa that gets them all the time.

No The Airplane Did Not Cause It

Furthermore …

One hour later and I am still experiencing internal aftershocks.

I called my husband the same minute it happened. I needed conformation. He answered the phone and first thing ‘did you feel the earthquake?‘. ‘Yes I did‘ – I replied. He mentioned that he felt pretty good, it was in Concord. Probably when it hit Aurora, it dissipated.

The origin this time came from Virginia. More data here

An unusually strong magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck Virginia Tuesday afternoon, sending tremors along the East Coast of the United States.‘, FoxNews reported.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.


  1. You felt it in Aurora?

    I work in south Aurora now and didn’t feel a thing. Weird.

  2. Yes I did Michael.
    I noticed those who were standing did not really feel it.
    I think you have to be sitting down to feel the quake but I could be wrong.

  3. Once again, the earth did not move for me…. I was at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, either walking the trail, or sitting at a chess table.

  4. Kaslkaos, lol, usually if you stand it is hard to feel the earthquake, and those chess tables at the Fairy Lake are very sturdy, lol. May be next time :).
