CFN – A near 5.0 Earthquake struck Eastern Ontario near Braeside. Trembles and rumbles were felt as far away as here in Cornwall Ontario where we had the standard UFO sightings.
The quake, measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale hit at 9:48 AM.
We’re awaiting to see if Mayor Bob Kilger hits the panic button and calls a State of Emergency although the last one he called still is apparently in effect as the city has not notified anyone that it’s ended.
We will be reporting on any damage or information as news is updated.
