Earthquake rumbles under Lake Ontario Tuesday

Local News

A 2.4 magnitude earthquake occurred under Lake Ontario at 5:27 pm Tuesday afternoon.

The quake was 10 km (6.2 miles) under the lake and was centered 25 miles east of Toronto.

This follows another earthquake that happened under the lake just last Friday that measured a magnitude of 1.5.

While major fault lines do not cross the Northeast and eastern Canada there are some lesser fault lines that do cross Lake Ontario. Movement along these fault lines can cause earthquakes. The Central-Metasedimentary fault line was the closest one to Tuesday’s quake.

As of 7:30 pm Tuesday there were no reports of damage from the earthquake. People in the Canadian towns of Whtiby, Ajax and Oshawa reported feeling the quake.
