According to, there was an earthquake early Friday morning under Lake Erie.  It took place six miles southwest of Port Colburne, Ontario and registered 2.1 on the Richter scale.

2.1 isn't an earthquake you're gonna feel, unless maybe you were right on top of it.  If that was the case, why are you hanging out in the middle of Lake Erie??  Even if you were you still would have just felt a small tremble.


Small earthquakes happen here from time to time but never anything that is strong enough to do any damage.  That's a good thing obviously.  We might get a lot of snow but at least our homes are in tact after it hits!
