The earthquake

June 23, 2010 - Frank Robinson

I felt it.

I was sitting here in my office and noticed my computer monitor started shaking -- more like wobbling -- and at first thought nothing of it. Then, I thought I was getting dizzy. Then I thought maybe a tractor-trailer had banged into the building at the loading dock out back.

About that time I looked out my office door and heard someone say, "why is the building shaking?"

It was an earthquake, measuring 5.5 magnitude, according to wire reports. It hit at the Ontario-Quebec border region of Canada today, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was felt, according to reports, from the city of Toronto in Canada, as well as Michigan, Vermont and New York and Ohio. There were reports of people in Cincinnati also feeling the movement.

It also was felt in Warren.

Officially, the USGS said the quake occurred at a depth of about 12 miles and officially occurred at 1:41 p.m.

I emailed my wife. She didn't feel it. Called my boss, same answer. But it was real and it happened. It even rattled some windows here in the newsroom
