Earthquake Of 1663
Known in Canadian history as the "Great
Earthquake." The most extravagant accounts have come down as to the
circumstances attending this earthquake, but it was undoubtedly the most
serious disturbance of the earth's crust, in Canadian territory, of
which we have any record. It affected chiefly the valley of the St.
Lawrence from Montreal to the gulf, a region more susceptible to seismic
disturbance than any other in Eastern Canada. Kingsford cites
contemporary reports of similar phenomena in 1638 and 1766. =Index=: (Count Frontenac era)
