Amazing - I leave California and the earthquakes follow me. The US Geological Survey website reports a 5.4 magnitude earthquake just near Salem, Illinois which is considered Downstate.
I was awake at the time, about 4:40 am CDT and my entire office shook for about 10 seconds and then right after that another rattle for 5 seconds.
Wondering if people like Lori at Smoky Mountain Family Historian, Jasia at Creative Gene or even Terry at Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi felt it.
What is weird is this: it is the same day, 102 years ago, of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906.
I will keep this post updated and write about my experiences with the 1989 Loma Prieta quake which I lived through.
