earthquake


This morning I awoke from my dreams to the shaking of my bed. I have never felt this sensation before. I went back to bed. It wasn’t until the morning that I realized from the news we had experienced an earthquake. In Indiana? You think of California or India, but not the Midwest.

The U.S. Geologic Survey reported that the first earthquake had a magnitude of 5.2 and shook for about 15 seconds as the temblor rumbled at about 5:37 a.m. The quake was centered about 40 miles north of Evansville, IN., along the Wabash Valley Fault Zone, which is north of the well-known New Madrid fault area. An aftershock came about 11:30am while I was in the office.

How cool? And what power!!
