Who felt the quake this morning???

Recommended Posts

I was in bed this morning and at first I thought the wind was blowing. Then I realized that the stuff inside the house was shaking. It was centered in southern Ill and I tell you what, it got my butt out of bed in a hurry.

I slept through it....except my phone kept ringing-my friends wondered if I slept through it. yeah, those conversations could have waited...4:30 am is not my favorite time of day for any conversation...

I'm not sure if I felt it. I can remember feeling a rumble, but I dont know if it was the earthquake. Everyone in my house got woken up by it...except me.

I gotta email my Mom and brothers and sister in Kankakee, Ill and see if they felt it that far North! We have over 300 quakes a year here in Kalifornia but about 99% of them are so small that you never even know they happened (3 or less mag on the richter scale). It's the BIG one that scientists are 100% sure will happen that I'm concerned about. The Island of Kalifornia - sounds cool, but is it??

I thought someone had broke in our apartment this morning, so I woke up to what sounded like someone walking fast on the wood floors, alot of creaking, walked into the livingroom expecting to have a visitor and no one was there.  Looked at the shelf with all the Jack daniels bottles on it, and you could see the empty ones rattling a little and the half full one swishing around a little.  Was pretty crazy.  Went back to bed thinking I was still run tight from last night to find out that there was an earthquake.

I slept right through it here in Indianapolis, but my wife sure did wake me up and let me know.  Plus all of our friends were calling from 5:30-7:30 asking if we felt it.

My dog Charlie was going nuts outside this morning right before it happen, he was what origanly woke me up.

I can see why friends call ya up at 4:30 in the morning for that ;)

Yep, dogs and other animals/insects can sense when a quake is about to happen. Scientists think the animals pick-up on the electromagnetic pulses/vibrations given off by a quake several minutes before we humans actually feel it. Kinda like a "quake alarm" if you have a dog around the place:o)

I heard the house creaking quite a bit around 5:30 this morning.  Thought it strange at the time as there wasn't any wind.

I didn't feel this one (I'm too far away) but I remember when I was little I lived in California and experienced the Northridge earthquake. Large earthquakes are incredibly strange to experience for the first time It's very disorienting to have your house moving from side to side under your feet, especially if you are in the disoriented state because the quake just woke you in the middle of the night. I remember waking up and not having a clue what was going on, the house was shaking violently and it was dark...and I was only 6.
