The earthquake near Chicago was felt here, I live about 40 miles from the epicenter. I don't wake up easily, and I woke right up! I felt a small one like 10 years ago where a plate shook. It was weird. Searched on twitter to make sure I wasn't going crazy, and everyone was awake from the shake.

My mom was awake, too and was like, Check Yellowstone!

im about 48 miles away from the exact area..i was laying in my bed, and I heard my computer table shaking..and my bed shook..i got up fast as hell thinking some crazy # just happened, I have never felt that before..

So i was thinking.. what ? did a earthquake just hit ? here ? and I noticed my mom and dad woke up at the same time..but they dont know what happened, im just wondering..yeah ok, woke up at the same time..at this time ? random ?

I checked online to make sure I wasnt crazy..lol and wow..

So is this an after shock ? A lot of people in the chicago area or suburbs have felt something too now..

Illinois is at risk from the New Madrid Fault.

Quakes in Illinois are unusual, especially large ones, but it has the potential.

The New Madrid fault system was responsible for the 1811–12 New Madrid Earthquakes and may have the potential to produce large earthquakes in the future. Since 1812 frequent smaller earthquakes were recorded for the area.[1]

Earthquakes that occur there potentially threaten parts of seven U.S. states: Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

Don't think it's an aftershock - in fact there may be some after that 4.3. That would have been the main shock.

I live about 30 miles from epicenter. I woke up a few minutes before I felt the shaking. What's so strange is I, as well as a lot of other people, heard an explosion sound.

I used to live in Northern California and the quakes never felt like this one.

I know this is a stupid question, but what was the thunder like sound?

Another strange thing, is the same thing happened almost two years ago at the EXACT same time in the morning.

3 earthquakes in Oklahoma


Though earthquakes are considered rare for Oklahoma, today’s marks the third in the region this week.


Well I live in Oklahoma and I haven't ever heard much earthquake talk except for the jokes in my parents house, blaming the "Tulsa fault line", whenever my dad rips a big one.

Magnitude 4.6 - WESTERN IRAN
2010 February 11 16:29:40 UTC

depth: 10 km


earthquake.usgs.gov...

EMSC says it was a Mag 4.8


A nuke test? Considering that the Iranian President announced today that "Iran is now a nuclear power". Plus, the North Korean 2nd nuke test was initially reported as a Mag 4.7 at 10 km. Just saying...
