Anne - What on Earth?

(no subject)

We just had a freaking EARTHQUAKE. Houses rattling, dishes falling off the shelves, the whole nine yards. This is not common in Northern Indiana, and as a result we've been getting flooded by calls -- a lot of people woke up thinking someone was trying to break into their house!

Update: preliminarily a 5.4, centered in Illinois south of Vincennes. How are you all doing over there?

another update: CNN is showing some damage in Louisville, KY -- looks like maybe the facade of a building came off. Also, callers reported feeling the quake in Tennessee, which means it shook at least four states. I haven't heard yet, but surely it was felt in Missouri, too.
