Did you feel that?

Apparently the midwest suffered a minor earthquake overnight. Anyone notice it?

Nope, though I'm not sure where it could be felt.

Several years ago, we had an earthquake centered over near JNA. I was outside trying to finish a volunteer housing rehab project. I was standing in the driveway when I felt both knees buckle. I thought it was weird, but since both of my knees are bad, I didn't think too much more of it. When I got home later and realized that my knees buckled about the same time as the quake, I was rather surpised. Fortunately, there was no damage.

NOPE, I was dead asleep at 1:00 am when it apparently hit.. However at 4.5 mag. I'm about 500 miles for the epicenter so I wouldn't think I'd feel it.

You know what... I woke up to mild rattling noises and small earthquake type noises... but I am sure it was due to my neighbor's (up stairs) quest to reproduce.

I'm about 70-80 miles from the epicenter and did not feel it. However, my parents live about 20 miles away and were woke up to a rumbling house and rattling dishes. No damage has been reported outside of stuff knocked off of shelves.

Other people in my area did notice the quake. Apparently, the rumble lasted 3-10 seconds.
