Thread: Mini Earthquake ... in Indianapolis?

  1. #1

    Default Mini Earthquake ... in Indianapolis?

    Did anyone else notice that? Just now at about 5:40 AM ... my house shook kinda crazy like. It woke my roommate who wondered what the hell I was doing to cause it ... kinda freaked me out a little bit.

    All the way in Bedford, I felt it.

    I was typing in the Counting Thread as this was happening. The monitor was shaking while I was typing.

    Did anyone notice that it was kind of a slower "rocking" instead of a "tremble"?

    I felt rocking. I have to make fun of the Hoosiers that say they'd never move to California because of Earthquakes. I lived there most of my life and never felt an earthquake that intense. I felt it and yelled "BACK HOME AGAIN BABY"!!! Didn't scare me a bit though.

    There was one a couple of years ago. Not as major as this though.

    I don't know about you guys, but the highest level on that scale sounds cool as hell!

    Ground surface waves? Stuff thrown? Sweet!

    What trips me out is the fact that it was felt across 3 states. Even in California it seemed that if you heard about an earthquake in SoCal, you didn't feel it in Central or NorCal.

    I was on the 3rd floor of the North Government Center. I was thinking it was either an earthquake or a terrorist attack, and either one seemed just as likely as the other.

    I made some calls, obviously, and fortunately, it was the former. Posts as far north as Ft. Wayne called in to report it!

    They have these nutjobs on TV saying that they were driving and didn't feel anything. "Oh but my wife called and told me there wuz an earthquake."

    If you didn't feel it then you dont count!

    Our house is 3 story and it woke me up. I had some stuff knocked off shelves. We were just off the epi of a 6.5 in Mexico a few years back which was obviously much worse, but still...when you wake up to that and it's sustained and it's Indianapolis.

    Freaked me out. Glad it was only a 5.4 way west of Evansville because I was not getting to safety in time if it was worse.

    Even after it ended things were still shaking around the house for a few seconds.
