yep we all did
Yes I did… it was quite strong
sure did im in chomedey laval
Yes its true. 4-5 second long
Yeah we felt it. My brother in law and i were up. The quake was strong enough to bring my sister and the kids up from bed.
Yes I live on Hutchison X Milton…it’s like the whole building got a big hit…people from other buildings came out to talk too..
Ya everybody in my house felt that one. OMG!
That was pretty intense. 4.2 earthquake as per natural ressources canada’s website. http://www.seismescanada.rncan.gc.ca/index-fra.php
yes, I felt it…and ironically I was just writing in my journal how a half decent earthquake would reduce the building i’m living in to rubble, along with half the other mafia constructed apartment houses in the city…
Yeah felt the house rumble at 12:20am, frightening!
Woke me up. Sent my cat scurrying. Felt like an earthquake, but I didn’t know we got them here so my brain rationalized it as a big truck going up the street. Great sound!
We felt it in HoMa! Where are you? Wasn’t sure if explosion.
Yeah,sure did.I live in Ville-emard in a basement.was working on the computer so i felt the tremor really hard.
I am in Chomedey, Laval & boy was it very loud which lasted some very long seconds.
Trying to get info on TV, but nothing is mentionned yet.
Yes, I felt it. I’m on the Plateau. My bedroom was shaking.
Yep, my neighbours too. Not as rare as we think. I think that’s two in eight years. The EarthquakesCanada site says it was a 4.5 in Longueil (http://www.earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca/index-eng.php)
PS I love how there is a thing called Earthquakes Canada.
yup at 12.18 for about 5 sec
U.S. says 3.9 near Beloeil.
Last one I recall was a good sharp shake midafternoon in 2010 sometime.
What part of the city are you in? We’re in CSL & definitely felt something.
yes.. we live in Pointe Claire and felt very strong push…. even the walls were bouncing … we were frozen for a while but then everything calmed down…still, weird feeling…
Yes , I live in Ile Bizard it was around 12:30 am . A very stong noise and then I felt the tremor in my bed room..
I felt it too. I’m also in Villeray, in an upper duplex. It felt like a large snowplow & truck combo and lasted a good 10 seconds. I knew Mtl is in a somewhat active zone but I’ve never felt one before. A bit scary. The neighbours across the street felt it too.
I heard it far more than I felt it. It sounded like a freight train whizzing by my apartment window.
I’m in Repentigny and it woke me up. I’m used to the shakes because of the train tracks but this was much louder and caused things to fall in my china cabinet!
Yeah, that was quite long too. I’m surprised there isn’t more damage. It was weird compared to other quakes I’ve been in, more like intense vibrating then shaking.
Felt it in Sainte Jean Sur Richelieu…scared the shit out of me and the dog. LOL. Thought I was going nuts for a second. Funny thing, we recently moved from Victoria…which is where I should have felt an earthquake, as it’s in an “earthquake zone”……phew…glad that’s done with though!
Hope this thing didn’t damage my condo’s foundation…
I’m in Pointe-Claire. I heard a faint rumble first then felt it. Small but scary.
Yes real strong in St- Leonard. Thought a plane fell down . Real scary
If that was a 3.9/4.5, I really don’t want to know what a 7.0 is like.
I live in st constant Quebec south shore 4 klms from mercier bridge, I was just falling asleep and woke up scarred , first I heard a loud bang like someone falling in my house , then the bedroom was shaking followed by the whole house it was very scary. It lasted about 10 seconds. Very scary my daughter woke up too asking what just happened .
Was that an earthquake or Quebec trying to separate ?2
In east Montreal, I felt it like an explosion followed by shaking. First thing I thought was that gas pipe had blown below ground.
felt it rumbling in westmount. no damage
it was so scary, my mind cannot think anything else but how it felt like when the floor seem like FALLING DOWN…it started w/ the big BANG, sounds like sth very heavy suddenly dropped onto the GROUND FROM UP HIGH, then the floor just start shaking like crazy and loud noise coming from underground… first i thot sth went wrong in subway cuz i live above the Orange line in NDG, then everything on my table were viberating and the wall shaking as well, i can’t believe what’s happening, this is a concrete building ,…then a second BANG, and everything keep shaking a few secs more, it stopped…i’m new in Montreal, i’m worried if Montreal’s a earthquake city like some on the west coast?! but just read thru the news make me feel earthquake is getting common in many major cities these past few years…is 2012 really coming?
I’m down in the Old Port. Was woken from a sound sleep by what felt and sounded like two explosions, not the usual rumbling shaking of an earthquake. Weird.
Cherry, Montreal is in a seismically active zone but not a major one. It means we get the occasional 4-ish quake every few years or so. I can remember 4 or 5 small quakes spread out over years, but never any serious damage, so don’t worry.

I heard it too, I live in Vimont, Laval. it terrified me at first, then when so no one in my neighborhood looking out, wondered if it was just a nightmare. then worried it would happen again.
I was fast asleep. If my cats noticed it, they did nothing that would wake me up either.
