    Default EarthQuake!!

    About 20 minutes ago here in Illinois, we just had an Earthquake!! I woke up about an hour ago and as it was happening I was thinking: "I know I'm tired, but the whole house is shaking not just me".

    It was a magnitude of 5.4!

    He's in southern IL if I remember. Thats odd. Illinois never get earth quakes. Hmm, I'll have to talk with my family up in Gurnee. Plus one of the guys I live with (down the dorm hall) has family in Rochester. I wonder where the epicenter was.

    Shake! Rattle and Roll!

    I too am surprised by this. Not sure I have ever heard of a trembler in that part of the country. We get them here all the time to the point that if it is below a 5.0 no-one even bats an eye. (I live mere miles from the Loma Prieta faultline)

    Glad it just woke you up and didn't hurt you.

    sweet jebus. 2 Earthquakes in 8 hours?

    Apparently people from Iowa to Indiana felt it!
    My mom had a meeting today with someone from the far north shore of Chicago, who felt it. Plus I think there were reports from Wisconsin too. This is f'ed up.

    We get earthquakes in Oklahoma alot, but they are 2 and 3's so nobody feels them, they just show up on records...
