Quake felt in southern Canada
People in the small town of Kemptville located about 12 km northwest of the quake's epicenter, as well as in other nearby areas, could clearly feel the quake in the evening.
Many described to have heard a loud sound followed by a short rattling movement of the ground.
Due to the regional geology of dense, old crustal rocks and its shallow depth, the quake - although comparably small in magnitude - was felt more strongly than it would under other circumstances (e.g. regions in sedimentary basins). There are no reports of damage.

Small 2.7 quake hits near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
2.7 quake 13 Mar 7:50 pm (GMT -5)
2.7 quake 13 Mar 7:50 pm (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 2.7 occurred early evening on Saturday 13 March 2021 at 7:50 pm local time near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, as reported by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 5.6 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the United States Geological Survey which listed the quake at magnitude 2.7 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Kemptville (pop. 500) located 8 miles from the epicenter. In Osgoode (pop. 2,600, 14 miles away), Brockville (pop. 23,900, 26 miles away), Nepean (pop. 180,000, 28 miles away), Kanata (pop. 90,000, 31 miles away), Ottawa (pop. 812,100, 33 miles away), Vanier (pop. 17,000, 35 miles away), Gatineau (pop. 242,100, 37 miles away), and Cornwall (pop. 48,800, 39 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
