The Indiana Earthquake!

The earthquake woke me up 5.2 was out of southern Illinois. My whole room was shaking and swaying--I could actually hear the foundation creaking. My bed wouldn't stop moving so I jumped out of it. It scared the mess out of me! I could hear a low humming/rumbling like when a hurricane is trying to tear the roof off and vibrations like a huge freight train was right outside my door--but other than that it was quiet--no train noises.
(I thought it was my neighbor but don't tell him I said so.)
Go to the USGS website if you felt the earthquake too. I looked at the clock (which is fast) and it said 3:41 a.m. I was trying to watch Shepard's Chapel.
I sprang out of bed and went into my children's room to check on them--to play it off because I was scared.
