- At 3:21 a.m. on March 29, yet another earthquake struck near Montreal.
- The actual earthquake is fascinating on its own, but Montrealers' reactions to it on Twitter are the cherry on top.
- Read some of the city's locals' tweets about the earthquake below!
A magnitude 3.6 earthquake struck near Montreal early on the morning of March 29, 2020. According to the Government of Canada's official website, it hit at exactly 03:21:04 EDT. Although it struck 39 km NNE of Montreal, many of the city's locals seemed to have truly felt it — and took to Twitter to share their experience of it.
This earthquake is the second one to strike near Montreal in March 2020. And oddly, the two of them struck at nearly the same time, 3:21 a.m. on March 29 and 3:22 a.m. on March 6.
Technically, since the one on March 6 occurred before Daylight Savings Time, they were actually an hour time difference.
But, it's still a spooky thought to consider that the Earth may just enjoy shaking things up in Montreal at the same time every now and again.
Did you feel it? If so, make sure to fill out the Government of Canada's questionnaire about it, which helps them gain data about this occurrence.

Believe me when I say this is the comedic relief we all needed right now.

Since Montreal and its surrounding areas have already felt a shake or two this year, some locals have simply gotten used to it.
@CTVMontreal @claudina_ocando It’s just the usual Montreal Sunday night earthquake, get used to it.— Twenty Quarantino (@Twenty Quarantino) 1585492126.0
Some people in the city seem to be immune to earthquakes, and just mistake them for other things...
On the note of reoccurring earthquakes in the nearby Montreal area, one person believes we must have "finally pissed off old earth gods or something."

Buckle up, folks.
Some people are just downright over these earthquakes.
While for others, it simply disrupted their sleep.

It may have frightened some, but others seem to be straight-up fans of these earthquakes.

This earthquake even seems to have made one person miss Montreal a little extra.
While others are asking the Earth to chill a little — since we've got a lot on our plate right now.
Ok, Montreal, we got enough to worry about already can you please tone it down on the earthquakes that'd be great— 🌸Mel Kush🌸 (@🌸Mel Kush🌸) 1585484804.0
A fair request, if you ask me.
If you see frogs coming down from the sky later today, this individual may have been onto something...
