This was a neat earthquake, shallow thrust with all the energy going to Ontario.  This is an area with a lot of earthquakes. There have been M5's.  The earthquakes are caused by a seep of Lake Erie water.  The earthquake energy rate is quite low.  Had this been the same mechanism, but an M5, then things might have been knocked off the shelves.  Tack down your valuable knick-knacks.
