I felt it here in Indiana.....I was actually up nursing Hayden around 5:30am and at first noticed the doors rattling then a few seconds later the whole house was SHAKING, items on my coffee table were falling over. It lasted about 15 seconds, DH came out to the living room and asked if I felt that.....

I didn't, but my mom did, who lives about 10 minutes away. I was sleeping soundly It wasn't as intense here though.

oh yeah we felt it!!! I was laying in bed feeding Elliot and dh was on the couch while Trevor was getting ready for school. My closet doors started shaking and I thought there was a train coming real fast (we have a train track going through our backyard) and then the bed started going and I knew it was an earthquake. I grabbed Elliot and ran downstairs and then turned on the news. My birds all fell from their perches!! It was totally crazy!!

I live in IL and we felt it!! I had just gotten back to bed from a potty-run (I'm still pregnant so that's normal) and had just gotten comfortable in bed and the bed started shaking!! Enough to wake up hubby and my daughter...but no damage...nothing fell over...and several hours later we had an aftershock...but thankfully everyone seems to be safe
