"We were just sitting there, having a normal day and we heard a big 'boom' "

These loud "booms" a local family heard and felt, may be the result of a Cryoseism or "Frost Quake's". They're caused by moisture in the ground freezing, then expanding. The pressure is then released with a loud bang. The water they saw and felt wasn't rushing from burst or frozen pipes, and it eventually stopped. So, what happened?

In the majority of cases, frost quakes occur after heavy rain or snow, when a large amount of water seeps into the ground. Add that to our record- breaking below-zero temperatures, and you have a recipe for disaster. Reports of these "Frost- Quake's" are coming from Toronto, Michigan and Ohio.

The latest possible victims; this family from Ontario. The effects from these "frost quakes" are very localized according to geological surveys. So localized, that your house could be affected, and your neighbors wouldn't feel a thing.
