Magnitude-5.5 earthquake shakes Canada

A 5.5-magnitude earthquake centred in southern Ontario shook many parts of Canada Wednesday, the US Geological Survey reported.

The earthquake was at a depth of 19 kilometres and about 60 kilometres north of Ottawa, where political staffers and journalists poured out of their offices and onto the streets across from Parliament Hill, the Toronto Star reported.

The tremors, which lasted for about 30 seconds, were also felt in Toronto, DPA reported.
