I was just abruptly shook out of bed this morning by a tremor/earthquake, I felt one a few years ago but not near as strong as this one. With all the quakes off the coast in Ore. it could be something is gonna happen. I have no link to a news source as I am reporting it, so Mods if you wish to move this into a more appropriate place feel free. PS at least I hope it was a quake and not a shock wave from a nuke!!!!!!

Found a link

And here's a link to some more info on your quake, and area.
These earthquakes occurred in the Wabash Valley Seismic zone...
The Wabash Valley Seismic zone is adjacent to the more seismically active New Madrid seismic zone on the seismic zone's north and west. The recent earthquake is also within the Illinois basin - Ozark dome region that covers parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas and stretches from Indianapolis and St. Louis to Memphis. Moderately frequent earthquakes occur at irregular intervals throughout the region. The largest historical earthquake in the Illinois Basin region (magnitude 5.4) damaged southern Illinois in 1968. Moderately damaging earthquakes strike somewhere in the region each decade or two, and smaller earthquakes are felt about once or twice a year.
