I believe the post you're referring to is this one, and forgive me if I post this incorrectly..still new to ATS formatting as I don't often comment.
"FEMA Friends Will Be Gone "For Some Time"
where the poster Vinny5036 states
he's in Illinois, an area which would be impacted by any New Madrid quake.
To my knowledge, this isn't unusual for the area, but maybe a once per year sized quake. I live in the region and, growing up, am used to hearing
about "oh did you feel it? I felt it!" comments about once a year, a 3-4ish magnitude quake. So, not unusual, but rare, and a routine enough reminder
that for my entire life, people have been worried about what a real "big one" (I hate that term) might bring.
Here is another ATS thread from last year about a 3.6 quake near the same area, albeit the thread was leaning towards other topics:
3.6 Quake near New Madrid
Personally, I'm not sure if I felt this, but at about the exact time this quake was reported (apparently ~85 minutes ago) I thought I heard (edit: the
buzzing noise) and felt my phone vibrate like I got a text message. I keep it on my desk a few inches from my hand, so I can feel it normally, but I
did not receive anything. I thought it was odd at the time, but this appears to be the explanation. I'm ~175 miles away.
Let's hope this stuff doesn't go badly.
