that was just the oddest thing to wake up to this morning. my door was rattling like crazy, and then there it was again at around 11:30, which was the after shock. i saw on the news in downtown louisville there was some moderate damage to a building which had concrette blocks and all sorts of debris on the street and they had to close it.

i liked this expirience though, i have allways wanted to know what it felt like to be in an earthquake, i wanted to know how it felt to have the ground move under us. now i can say that ive felt an earthquake.

i thought it was cool

Crazy, as i was just thinking about this when someone mentioned they would rather live in the midwest instead of the West because of earthquakes, that the Midwest is actually prone to big ones, just hasn't happened recently. Then a couple of days later, bam! Earthquake! Well, now they know it can happen in the midwest too lol.

Chitownwarrior? "You have friends?" I think I woke up my family when I read that! The last big earthquake I was in (1971) was in the morning and the Northridge event (1994) happened around 4:31 in the morning also. They are definately one of those no BS kind of moments. You really feel alive when you're in the middle of one. You also tend to feel like your world is at an end. When the new Madrid goes, however, I don't think anyone's going to consider it 'cool'.

Oh! That was the New Madrid! Then you should study the reports to see if energy was released or not. If not, then you people in that area should be more ready than at any time in your entire lives to experience sheer- you know...

They just said on the news it was felt in Georgia too! Unbelievable!

I think that the area where the earthquake occured is called the Wabash Fault Zone.
