It woke up Paperclip. She said, "Why is everything shaking? Are we having an earthquake?" Nobody answered her because Mommy and Daddy didn't even WAKE UP dammit:
WEST SALEM, Ill. (AP) — A 5.4 earthquake early Friday rocked people awake as far away as Indiana, surprising residents unaccustomed to such a large Midwest temblor.
The quake just before 4:37 a.m. was centered 6 miles from West Salem, Ill., and 66 miles from Evansville, Ind. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
"It shook our house where it woke me up," said David Behm of Philo, 10 miles south of Champaign. "Windows were rattling, and you could hear it. The house was shaking inches. For people in central Illinois, this is a big deal. It's not like California."
The quake also shook tall buildings in downtown Indianapolis, about 160 miles northeast of the epicenter.
I am so disappointed I could bite someone.
And, by the way, the great San Fransisco earthquake occurred at 5:12 A.M. on Wednesday, April 18, 1906.
Update: Just felt an aftershock (around 10:20), so now I'm happy.
