Guess what? Illinois had an earthquake last night. Nothing like the tremors felt regularly on the West coast, but a seismic event nonetheless. 3.9 of the Richter scale. The epicenter was about 35 miles NNW of where I live. At 4:00 AM, I woke to a noticeably shaking house. Did something hit the house?? It felt like a train was rumbling by, just outside the house. But there are no tracks nearby.
We sustained no damage. Some of the people at work who live a little closer had some pictures fall off the walls.
It was sort of interesting since I had only experienced one other similar sized quake, and that was about 30 years ago. I do know one thing, though - I have no desire to experience a BIG quake.
