What do we do in the event of a bigger earthquake?

Is it possible to have a large damaging earthquake here? I realize I have no safety plan in place for an event such as that. I was always told Sudbury is just too rocky for that to happen here. Now I am not so sure.

    My recommendation to everyone that asks this question. Stop being useless. Yes, I said it. If you are over 25 years old and still wondering what you should do in the event of an emergency, congratulations….according to Darwins theory, you don’t belong after day one of the event. Every, and I mean EVERY household should take responsibility for itself and have at least 3 days emergency supplies. Do you really want to have to rely on the government to help you? Everyone thinks the system will take care of them. In a bad enough emergency, it can’t and won’t. Have a few days supply of water, food and first aid kit. You know….start acting like an adult. As far as I can tell, i can see a natural disaster happening and a bunch of dummies walking around in the streets complaining and not having a clue what to do. You know, like when they say “Please, stay off the streets…dont drive unless you absolutely have to….” And next thing you know, there’s a bunch of morons out and about trying to buy timmies to ride the storm out with??? Reality check people….shit is happening everyday, and if something big happens, your latest cell phone wont do anything for you. I personally believe that if something big enough happened where the system was down for 30 days, there’d be alot of dead people all over. There are two kinds of people in the world. Those prepare and don’t need to go crowd into a school gym and sleep with hundreds of people they don’t know, and those that don’t have to run out right away begging for help. So? What are you going to do to prepare? Bury your head up your ass and hope it works out? Or go buy a few cans of tuna and bottled water so you don’t have to suck Trudeau’s ass for a handout on the first day of the apocalypse? LOL Have fun all.

  3. Lol kiss sudbury good bye cause a big enough quake yous all become an subterainian city be swolled up by all the empty mine shafts that stech for mile wide and miles deep

    It seems the “quake” was triggered by a mine blast. Can anyone confirm this.

  5. Eric RB Eric RB says:

    Not too much … wait it out. We can always rebuild.

  6. Probably a wicked pressure crack on nipissing

  7. Hold on tight……enjoy the ride

  8. I would worry about the potholes more, does the city ever check after so many mine blasts, earthquakes, etc.? We see that occasional road collapse and it makes me wonder…

  9. If we ever get a major earthquake best thing to do is find a buddy and kiss your asses goodbye

    No we are in the middle of a plate we only experience rock bursts not true earthquakes caused by plate interactions.

    First thing when a earthquake happens is grab your phone and post about it ……

    You make sure your house insurance is paid up

  13. If you need a real plan incase of such an event maybe do some research.

  14. Sudbury doesn’t generally have large earthquakes. Sudbury does sometimes have earthquakes, or feels the effects of large earthquakes elsewhere in the world (in 2010 we felt an earthquake that happened along the Ontario/Quebec border, in 2011 we felt a US earthquake here — one that actually caused an evacuation of Tom Davies Square and other downtown buildings), but there’s little that you can do in regard to a safety plan. Just make sure that anything that should be insured in insured, and have a place to go on the off-chance that your home does take damage.

  15. Lmao you act like we’ve never had an earthquake before

  16. Sudbury isn’t anywhere near the ring of fire (active tectonic plate edges) so the odds of having an earthquake that’d even knock down a game of Jenga is slim-to-none.

  17. pull down your pants put your head between your legs an kiss your fucken ass goodby.

    Sigh…dont worry the government will take care of you. Not

  19. Stick all small animals in the microwave and turn on, and be sure to pull your pants up over your shoulders and just wait it out.

    Sudbury is full of underground tunnels from mining to

  21. In the event of a real earthquake, sudbury is doomed. If a rock burst can shake a whole town (as it has before) imagine what a big seismic event would do to our city.

  22. That’s pretty much the worst we get.
