Toronto Earthquake – August 23, 2011

Leave a comment

An earthquake trembled the Toronto GTA area today at around 2PM. It was a shallow earthquake so it wasn’t felt by many.

Anyone in a condo or office buildings sure felt the sway though.

The quake, preliminarily measuring at a 5.9 magnitude, hit Virginia just before 2 p.m. and was also felt in Washington, New York City, and North Carolina. Some buildings were evacuated but no reports of any injuries.

The last earthquake was last year on June 23 with a 5.0 Magnitude.

With earthquakes becoming more frequent, my question is…

Does your home insurance cover earthquake damages?

I was in the basement of my office so I didn’t feel it. Anyone else felt the tremors? Please leave a comment
