It seems that many people in Ontario are experiencing "frost quakes," though they're generally rare.
Although a frost quake may sound as realistic as a sharknado, apparently they're a real — albeit rare — phenomenon.
Although the United State Geological Survey and the American Meteor Society had no reports of seismic events, people across Ontario have been reporting frost quakes since Christmas Eve.
Catherine Woodgold, a seismologist with Earthquakes Canada, said that with the sudden drop in temperature, frost quakes were a "very likely explanation" for what people have been experiencing.
Whether the noises are actual frost quakes or just people's houses creaking because of the cold temperatures, people all over Greater Toronto are saying they're experiencing frost quakes.
And nobody could sleep.
And people were generally just freaked out.
Someone actually thought they were being murdered.
But thankfully, frost quakes aren't deadly.
