The 1732 Montreal earthquake was a 5.8 mbLg magnitude earthquake that struck New France at 11:00 a.m. on September 16, 1732.[1] The shaking associated with this earthquake shook the city of Montreal with significant damage, including destroyed chimneys, cracked walls and 300 damaged houses,[2] as well as 185 buildings destroyed by fire following the earthquake,[3] representing approximately 30% of the houses in the city at the time.[citation needed] A girl was reported killed from the seismic activity, although Gabriel Leblanc found present information could not substantiate the claim, especially since, if the death was true, it should have been mentioned in the description of the natural disaster by Sister Cuillerier, a staff member of the Hôtel-Dieu Hospital, but was not.[1] The 1732 Montreal earthquake is one of the major earthquakes that occurred in the Western Quebec Seismic Zone.[4]
