4.5 earthquake

In Northern Illinois, about 70 miles southwest of Chicago. Of course, I didn't feel it but others are reporting that it woke them up.

I *think* I felt it here in Clinton. I was awake, though and had kind of written it off as a train passing by (we live about fifty feet from the tracks). Weird.

When I was a kid (about 5 or 6) we lived on a steep hill, and one day a bulldozer fell off its trailer and rolled down the hill until it hit a retaining wall. It really shook the ground while it was moving.

A short time later (a few months or so) we had a rather sizable earthquate while I was outside walking to school. I started to look around to see whether there was another bulldozer on the loose!

So tired.....

Heard about the Alaska one, 6.7 if I remember right. The Illinois one woke me up, I had just gone to bed and was only half asleep when it hit. We recently bought a new home and I woke up thinking "Did we miss a set of railroad tracks or something?" Once I got my head on straight, I figured it was either an earthquake (remembered the ~1986 one) or a low flying plane, but I heard no jet so figured it was an earthquake. Went back to sleep planning to check the web in the morning to be sure. When I got up this morning, there it was, 4.5.

It felt like the house was "running out of gas". Chugging along like when the car is about to die. Rattled the stalks on the window blinds, drawer pulls rattled. That was about it. Lasted about 20 seconds (after I woke up).

[pre-emptive strike]
Waiting for the CA people to chime in with "4.5, hell we wouldn't even notice let alone wake up or get out of bed." Remember that when the day comes that you get a quarter inch of snow and everything grinds to a halt as if it were frogs and locusts. Anything under two inches and we don't even brush off the car, just turn on the wipers and head out!!

I live exactly 58 miles north of the epicenter, and I didn't feel it. I didn't sleep well last night, but I managed to sleep through the earthquake

I'm about 30 miles northeast of it, and slept right through it.

I agree 4.5 isn't much but I felt it here just west of Milwaukee. The floor was shaking and my wine glass was dancing on the table. Since we don't see many earthquakes in this area it came as a surprise. Took me a moment to figure out it was an earthquake.

Shoot, having lived in Colorado, I don't bother brushing it off if it's less than a foot. But you don't get many storms like that here. I kind of miss that. In a way.

Interestingly, this is the first earthquake I've ever been anywhere near. I was actually in an elevator when a mild one hit LA when I was there.

A low level earthquake is a lot more shocking if you've never felt one.

(By the way, can tremors be felt more in a certain direction from the center? Our nuclear power plant didn't register anything, while some that are farther away than us to the north did.)

[Californian] 4.5? Hell we wouldn't even notice, let alone wake up or get out of bed. [/Californian]

I slept right through it. My wife said she didn't feel it either but my dog was barking in the middle of night. And she never barks in the middle of the night. Of course, I slept through that too.

(Sorry, couldn't resist...I live 4 blocks from Hayward fault)

p.s. did anyone's dog bark before or after the quake?
