Canada Quake Felt Locally

There was no damage but some people in the Pittsburgh area felt an earthquake that originated in the province of Ontario in Canada yesterday around 2 p.m. Seismic equipment at the University of Pittsburgh's Allegheny Observatory registered the tremors of the 5.0 magnitude quake which was centered near Toronto.
The quake was felt in at least 14 northeastern and midwestern states. There were no injuries in the Pittsburgh area but some rattled nerves of people in the Southside, Strip District and Oakland who felt the shaking and placed emergency calls.
