A magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit central Canada Wednesday afternoon, rattling buildings from Windsor to Montreal and several U.S. states.
The epicentre of the quake was likely in Quebec, north of Ottawa, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and struck at 1:41 p.m. EDT at a depth of 18 kilometres.
"This particular earthquake was quite deep," said Dr. Alexander Cruden, a professor of geology at U of T. He said a quake at that depth can be felt as far away as 500 kilometres.
