Earth Quakes in Indiana are not uncommon, however it is rare that one has an epicenter so far north.
When we do have an earthquake, it is usually in the south west part of the state where the fault line runs.
About 3 years ago there was a 4.7 earthquake very close to Vincennes Indiana, I was visiting some college friends, and had just gotten to bed about
4:00 am when it happened.
Earth Quakes don't happen that often in Indiana so when you feel one, most people are pretty confused at first.
(funny note: when the earthquake happened a fraternity brother of mine and his girlfriend came running into the room I was in completely naked and
scared half to death, they had no idea what had happened and thought it may be a tornado (how I don't know))
I am in Lafayette, and was still in bed when this one hit, so I didn't feel it, but do question it being so far north and close to the airforce
