5.0 & 4.0 Earthquakes Rock Ontario and Quebec

'It was like a massive explosion'

Dan Duggan owns the Pontiac Home Bakery in Shawville, Quebec.

When the quake hit at 9:43 a.m. ET, he was with staff in the bakery, making sandwiches.

"It was like a massive explosion that went off it just started shaking and the walls of the bakery were moving," said Duggan.

"I thought it was my propane tanks exploding. We were evacuating employees out of the building.

"It lasted for about 25 seconds and it went on for about another minute," he said.

"I've lived through earthquakes before, but never anything like that."
