Quake shakes southern Ontario-Thunder Bay

Folks in southern Ontario are buzzing about an earthquake Wednesday afternoon. Reports have the quake centred just north of Ottawa and measuring at 5.0 (revised) on the Richter Scale. One witness just outside of Ottawa says it lasted about 30 seconds and was "kinda scary". She says things were knocked off shelves. She says she never experienced something like that before. Meantime, there are some people who believe they felt a bit of the southern Ontario earthquake here in Thunder Bay. Susan Bushby works at the airport and says she touched a doorway and felt it moving back and forth slightly. She says they even saw hanging clothes swaying as if they were blowing in the wind. Bushby says it was a bit of a shock.
