Several Earthquakes this morning!

About 4:45 or so this morning the first few hit, I've heard 3 and the largest being 5.2. We had another about 10:15. The origin is apparently Illinois, but I don't know much more yet.

Such an odd feeling when your not used to them. It really hasn't been that long since the last round of quakes so it's not looking good for our area. Will have to wait to hear the findings and see if they predict a big one.

I didn't notice anything this far north, but then again, I've slept through a couple while out in California..

Well, thank god it was subdued by the time the shockwaves got here. Had a client call from Owensboro, KY who felt it as well. So it definately spread to the east pretty far.

I think the reason I didn't feel it is that everything that comes north is sucked into the BlackHole called Chicago.. I'm sure the shock waves were sucked into the city, just like my tax money.. :-)

I didn't feel it, was snoring, but it woke my daughter up, she said her bed was shaking. Was right around 5:30am eastern time. We're just south of Lexington.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Well it pulled me straight out of bed and had the whole house outside in a matter of mins. I have never seen my 12 yr old daughter get out of bed so fast!

I'm an ex Los Angelean, that was nothing. I'm In Cincinnati right now for the next 3 weeks then back to Calif. I don't move until things start to fall and break. Although, I did have something fall off a high shelf and fall onto one of my previous bikes and broke the windshield. So if you have things stacked high near your bike, you should put the heavy things down low and the light things higher.
