yah, I live in NW Indiana and it woke me from my sleep. I felt my bed vibrating and then I sat up and felt the floor vibrating too. I kind of thought that maybe I had imagined it and fell almost immediately back to sleep.
I really do like pie.

Awww, you guys are so cute, reacting to your one earthquake this century.  Admittedly, 5.2 is a pretty big event.  The 4.7 aftershock is nothing to sneeze at either.

If you ever have another one, the USGS quake site is a wealth of information: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/  It gets updated pretty regularly, too.

Gosh, I don't think we've had a good earthquake in a while. The last one that even stands out to me was about 10 years ago. i could  do with out the fires though. They were pretty close to us last year. A couple houses on my inlaw's street burned. It was scary.

We get tornadoes and floods.  That's about it.

I remember when I was in elementary school, or maybe I was older, and some guy was all over the news warning us in Arkansas about the faultline and that we'd "soon" get an earthquake that would level the state.  We had earthquake drills in school and they taught us how to make an earthquake kit that we could go home and make with our families.  I remember hiding a wrench behind our gas meter because turning that off was the most important thing to do.  That didn't happen anytime we defined as "soon."  So, that was the only year we had an earthquake drill or anything like that.

I was visiting Tennessee a couple of years ago when they had a small one.  We have to deal with Tornados a couple of the summer months and flooding when all the snow melts.  The coolest weather that I've ever seen was a bolt of lighting that took out power to 4 different towns for about a week.  The thunder that followed it was about 90 seconds after the flash too.

I once watched a tree fall down from across the street. That was a really windy storm. Wind's awesome. Wind rules.

I got the tail end of Hurricane Floyd in 2000, that was a blast (literally really) seeing all the trees lying flat like dominoes was impressive to say the least.

OH Yeah?!
Well I was in Charleston on the Navy base when Hugo bowled through in Sept. 21-22, 1989. 140mph sustained winds, with gusts to 155. And then walking outside when the eye passed over just after midnight for almost 45 minutes then in less than 30 seconds the other half of the storm hit.
That was the Most intense Adrenalin rush I've ever had!  :highfive:

I wish they gave earthquakes names like they do with tropical storms/hurricanes.

No good. I'd always want to name them "Insensurround."

Lot of Major Earthquakes recently..
Where - Date - Magnitude - Earthquake created by

Haiti - 01/12/2010 - 7.0 - 'Strike/Slip' fault

Japan (Okinawa) - 02/27/2010 - 7.3 - Subduction Zone

Central Chile (Talcahuano) - 02/28/2010 - 8.8 - Subduction Zone

So far, this year is turning into a very active year for earthquakes!

I'm gonna be paying a bit more attention to the 3 active earthquake areas in the continental U.S.: San Andreas fault zone, New Madrid Intraplate fault zone, and the Charleston, SC Intraplate fault zone for any increased activity.. :o

For some reason my area (Near Los Angeles) is feeling a earthquake from Tijuana?
