I wonder does this have anything to do with the birds and fish that are droping dead in Ark., Louisiana,and Kentucky

GREENTOWN, IN (WFIE) - A 3.8 magnitude earthquake rattled residents in north central Indiana Thursday morning.

The US Geological Survey confirmed that the quake struck just before 7 a.m. Evansville time, five miles southeast of Greentown (46 miles NNE of Indianapolis).

"(It) sounded like a jet engine roaring past our house!," wrote one Westfield resident on Twitter.

The quake was felt as far away as western Ohio.

The USGS preliminary report pegged the magnitude at 4.2 before adjusting it about an hour later.

Some residents described items rattling on shelves.

There are no reports of any injuries or significant damage from the mild quake, which took place while many residents were still asleep.

Howard County Chief Sheriff's Deputy Steve Rogers says the department was bombarded by phone calls after the quake from people wondering what had happened. He says some people reported hearing a loud boom.

Indiana University geologist Michael Hamburger told Indianapolis television station WTHR the temblor occurred in an area "that's seismically very quiet."

Very Interesting. I'm not sure if it means anything. But things have been getting weird all over the planet.

We've had 2 earthquakes here in England just in the last 2 weeks. Bit odd....

At risk of sounding like a broken record around here that all sounds exactly like what we experienced in Maryland this past summer. We had a quake roughly the same size with similar sounds and it was also in the early morning while some people were still asleep and startled from their beds. We are also a relatively quiet area seismically speaking and with little to our region to indicate we would be having a quake when we did. I would normally dismiss our quake as a completely insignificant event if not for the reports of quakes like it popping up where they had no reason to be expected and all within a few months of each other. I'm not one to freak out in a doom and gloom mind frame but I am watching with greater interest to see how this all plays out. Are we leading up to one large event, a series of mid size events, or are these all part of a series of minor adjustments in the wake of the massive quakes of the past few years? only time will tell.
