    5.4 Earthquake...

    Did anyone else feel the earthquake? It was a hell of an alarm clock, without a snooze. My wifes first thought was someone was running thru our house, my was a tornado, then I realized there wasn't any bad weather.
    I don't know how you West Coaster do it, you guys have to be Nucking Futs!

    I woke up to my bed shaking ever so slightly and thought nothing of it and went back to sleep. Then woke up 2 hours later and turned the news on and they were reporting about the earthquake. I have family that has a bed and breakfast right on the border of Southern Illinois and Kentucky, but haven't heard from them yet.

    I live about 28 miles south of Chicago.

      I Was outside smoking, heard my tailgate on my truck shaking but thought it was the wind. Then my son came out and said "Dad! were having a earthquake" so that explained that!!! I was inside the one back in the 80's, this one lasted alot longer. In Louisville Ky they got some building damage, the top of one fell a little

        My boyfriend lives in Indy, and he said his computer was shaking all over the desk, and he thought his apt. bldg was coming down.

        Thank God he is ok and nobody was hurt.

        How far are you from Indy, Mike?

          I live on the outer edge of Indianapolis and woke up to my bed shaking about 5:30 a.m. I could hear things moving around on the shelves and the windows rattling. Total time seemed to be 15 - 20 seconds. This is the first one I have ever felt. Interesting experience.

              I'm about 3 - 3 1/2 hrs south, halfway between Evansville and Louisville. We were only about 65 miles from the epicenter. No damage that I can see, but close enough to get a good jolt.

                When? I had two 7 yr old boys spend the night. I would have thought it was them.

                  lol I just remembered my son telling me this morning the cat kept shaking the bed and waking him up. This is funny bc I remember thinking the cat won't go near those 2 boys. I must have slept through it.

                      I didn't feel anything. I call my Mother who lives about an hour and a half south of us and she didn't either. We all must have been out for the count. I know I can pretty much sleep through anything.

                        The clock said 4:44 but I think it's about 8 minutes fast. And if those boys were awake at that time in the morning, then how much sugar had they eaten?

                          St. louis reporting in! I thought we were having a bad storm, but went back to sleep. I came downstairs and found my pictures on my desk overturned There was an aftershock a 1/2 hour ago.
                          Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

                            I didn't really feel the aftershock, but saw it. I have a flat screen monitor, and it was shaking a little, a few minutes later, the radio confirmed an aftershock.
