    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.

    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.
