Leslie and Eglington, felt the quake (They are saying around a mid 5 magnitude). On the ground floor of a one story building we were moving about 4 to 5 inches. When it amplifies on higher floors of bigger building i imagine some people had a good ride. Hope all you max'ers are good!

On the 6th floor @ my building near 401 & 404. Not crazy shaking, felt like I had the spins for a second. Then my wind chimes started ringing.

My buddy said that in Ottawa things were falling off walls and ceilings. I think he's most upset about spilling his Coke though...
