I live in NW indiana, and at exactly 1:14am I felt my whole house shake!!! Only lasted for like 10 seconds, but it was scary as hell... NW Indiana doesn't get tremors!!! =P Anyway they said it was a 4.5, not much damage, and it was felt in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan... It's epicenter was some small town 50 o rso miles west of here.... Anyone else feel it??? I thought my dog was under my bed.... =P http://earthquake.usgs.gov/recenteqsUS/Quakes/uskgad.htm

I heard about it on Paul Harvey News (I think it was PHN...) this morning....it seems that earthquakes are hitting more and more in the midwest than in decades past. I've not felt one in Michigan, but I have in Ohio in the geologically-recent past. Neat link you posted...thanks!

When I was still living in Ohio, there was one. This was about five years ago. Weirdest thing in the world. My parents and I thought there'd been an explosion at the army arsenal down the road in Ravenna. Crazy!

I remember that one! I was in the Kent State architecture studio--on the 4th floor- when it hit. I was just sitting there, when suddenly it felt like the whole building moved left while my chair stayed where it was. There was no damage, but all of the hanging lights were swinging for the next 5 minutes.

If Justin felt it I guess I just slept through it. I am a hard one to wake.

I'm about 20 miles from the epicenter and it didn't wake me. It woke my boss, his wife, my wife and the dog. Then again, sometimes I sleep deeper than the dead. Sometimes, only the dead can wake me...
