AbstractThe February 8th, 1855, magnitude 5.2 (mN) Moncton earthquake occurred sometime between 06:30am to 07:15am local time. It is one of the largest of southeastern New Brunswick and it caused minor damage. Chimney damage was reported in Moncton, New Brunswick. In Hopewell, near the epicentre, the shock cracked the plastering of walls. The earthquake was felt over most of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and was also felt in the state of Maine. This Open File Report provides the felt information from 55 localities. For each locality, the felt information is rated on the Modified Mercalli intensity (MMI) scale and tabulated in a Microsoft Excel sheet. When available, the description of the felt report is added. For many of the accounts, the second author copied the text by hand from the screen of the microfilm reader. In addition, when the copier microfilm reader was available, newspapers were scanned or copied from the on-line digital newspapers. The Open File also provides a GoogleEarth kmz file that allows the felt information reports to be viewed in a spatial tool.
