Earthquake 4-18-08

Anyone else feel this morning's earthquake around the midwest, Indiana, Illinios, etc.......??

G/F and I were sound asleep, woke up to the sounds of various things shaking in our bedroom. Woke up and turned on the news and they came back from commercial to announce they had felt the tremors too. They said it's a 5.4 magnitude. I remember we had a little one a few years ago, 02 I think but this one was a lot stronger. Freaky!!

No doubt! Stuff rattled loud enough for about 8 to 10 seconds to wake both of us out of our sleep and it was some nice deep sleep too! Man I'm glad I don't have to be up early, lol!!

I've never felt one but I hear its an experience. They clame one of the biggest faults in the world runs right through the midwest. It just isnt real active.
