Did anyone else feel the earthquake at 1:38 this morning?

I woke up for the 5.2 the other day, but I just happened to be awake this morning or I'd have missed this one. USGS says there've been 18 aftershocks, but this is the first I've noticed. Has anyone actually felt any of the other aftershocks here in Louisville?

I'm starting to worry just a little bit. I've read horror stories about the 1812 quake; I can't help wondering what something like that would do to our area now.

Do not worry... Just take some normal precautions such as having lips on your shelving (won't always do the job, but won't hurt), be certain that if your home is heated with gas that you have flexible hose hook-ups between the pipes and your appliances. Discuss your insurance coverages with your agent, and as with a fire plan, have an earthquake plan.
