I am in Ohio...at around 5:30am or so I asked my husband to stop moving his feet because the whole bed was shaking.  He said, "I'm not even moving.  The cat must be doing something."

When we were all up and moving around the house, my youngest son asked if there was an earthquake because his room was shaking.

When we discovered there indeed was an earthquake, my husband said, "I think someone owes me an apology."  LOL

The epicenter of the Quake was 6 miles from West Salem, ILL and 66 miles from Evansville, Indiana.  Recorded start was 4:36 am

Everything is fine here (we are in the eastern time zone so our "tremor" was at 5:36
I guess).  We live in a big, old Victorian home so I'm sure this old house has been through much worse in it's day!  

I am surprised the dogs didn't bark.  Perpaps they were scared.

I still think it's funny I blamed my husband...poor guy gets blamed for everything, even earthquakes!

Actually blaming my husband is more in line with the doctor's philosophy...think horses not zebras.  So when the bed is shaking blame husband, not earthquake.

My children are living in Kansas but I haven't talked to them yet because I would hate to wake them up.  Where in Kansas was it felt?  Was it like the whole state or just on the boarder?  My kids are in Wichita, could they have felt it there?

I'll be praying,
Carol

I have elderly second cousins that live in Salem. I called my mom and ask her to call and check on them. They said the dogs were going nuts, and then they heard something fall. All were fine. Thank God! What a rare thing.........is that the same fault line that runs all the way to Louisiana? I need to research that. I can deal with hurricanes cause we can leave, but the earth moving all of a sudden scares me...........
I just realized I was talking to myself and answering myself again.........LMAO

Blessings and Hugs,
Beth

It sure shook me out of bed!! I'm in Evansville and I've never felt anything like it. The kids came runing down stairs. At first I thought it was the wind, but within a few seconds I knew what it was.

Anyway, we are all OK here.

Take care everyone.

PS I know I owe a few of you messages. I'll be back here later today to catch up.
