SPN - Gotcha!

Earthquake!

I just love it when I get woke up in the middle of the night.

This time the good ol' New Madrid Fault has decided to wake up and say, "look at what I can do".

I'm not sure yet how strong it was, but I would guess 4.3-4.7 or so. It was a good shake, rattle and roll.

So, anyway. There was an earthquake and it shook me awake. Now, do I go back to sleep for two hours?

EDIT

Wow... 5.4 preliminary.

We had thunder and lightening from it. And it wasn't the New Madrid fault. It was the Wabash fault up in Illinois. Strange. West Salem, Illinois for the epicenter. 160 miles or so away.
