Did anybody else feel the earthquake this morning?

I was sitting at my desk sipping a cup of tea. 2 of my cats were on the desk and the other cat & the dog were laying on the rug behind me. All of a sudden all 3 cats bolted. The dog gave me a "what's up with them?" look and then the house shook.

USGS initial estimates of a 4.2 quake centered in Fairmount.

We felt it a little in Fort Wayne. Now USGS says it was 3.8.

Didn't feel a thing in Schererville, humans or animals. But I heard on tv some Chicago western suburbs felt it. I guess the tremors follow funny paths?

News article,

Indiana earthquake: a 'very loud boom'

(CNN) -- Debra Sholty was just opening up her business Thursday morning in Kokomo, Indiana, when a magnitude 4.2 earthquake rumbled through the north-central part of the state.

"It was like a huge explosion under your feet," said Sholty, the owner of Hobson Cleaners.

I didn't feel it, nor did I hear about it, until I received an e-mail message from a friend in California asking me about it!

Felt in South Bend. Was at work and thought a semi was loading in then found out we had no deliveries. Felt like the tremors in CA, nothing too bad, but still felt it. More like a banging feeling than a rumble.

I live next to the Borman Expressway. With all the trucks hitting pot holes, every day is an earthquake.
