A 5.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Ontario-Quebec border region this afternoon. I was working on the tenth floor of a building just West of Toronto when my colleague said "do you feel that, we're shaking".
I thought we might be feeling an earthquake, so I tried really, really hard to feel it. I've never felt an earthquake before. I could see the blinds moving, but I couldn't feel the ground moving.
Seconds after the shaking stopped, I tweeted the following via Twitter.
Was that an earthquake?
In real-time I was seeing tweets from folks all over Ontario, confirming we had just experienced an earthquake. When news like this breaks, there's nothing like the instant notifications Twitter can feed you.
I just wish I felt it.
