| 'Big Boom' Heard from Small Earthquake in Southwest Nova Scotia Canada
If you were in southwest Nova Scotia on Tuesday you may have felt the earth move. At 10:40 a.m., a 3.0-magnitude earthquake was recorded about 42 kilometres southwest of Digby, according to Natural Resources Canada. The centre of the quake was about 18 kilometres below the earth's surface. Brenda Small of Weymouth North felt it. "I heard a very loud bang, just a big boom and then it was over," she said of the "shiver" she felt in her house. "It wasn't anything to be a afraid of or think, 'Oh my, it's the end of the world,' nothing like that. It was just a big boom and then it was over." Donna Gaudet was at her cousin's basement in Little Brook, N.S., a few kilometres from the epicentre, enjoying a coffee. "We went flying up the stairs. If it wasn't an earthquake, we thought maybe a plane crashed. It was loud, it was louder than thunder," she said. "It wasn't really that exciting once the initial impact happened." This isn't the first time an earthquake has been felt in the area. In
