    About 5 minutes ago. No details yet. A pretty good shake here. Not sure where the epicenter was.

    Hey, not incredibly far from you, over in Tri-Cities, WA. Hope all is well and no damage happened.

    I still recall the shake a few years ago that were felt in Nebraska. You don't expect to feel an earthquake in Nebraska, but there it was in the early morning hour. My bed was shaking and at first I thought it was an over-loaded coal train which passes by about once a week that will shake the bed a little North to South, but my bed was shaking West to East....and a lot.

    I moved away from CA to avoid those things, but I guess you are never free of such things, even in the midwest.

    I never felt it here in eastern central Nevada, but have friends in Elko Nevada and family in Twin Falls that felt it pretty good. Salt Lake shook too. Quite a few quakes in the region lately. Hope Jellystone ain't getting angry.

    We seem to have then fairly regularly here in east TN, for whatever, but they're usually a rumble, sometimes they can be felt….it's weird

    I’m in central Illinois. On the news this morning, they said that the quake was picked up on a seismograph. I didn’t feel it but apparently the shock waves made it to central Illinois.

    I hope you are all safe.

    After looking at a few sites. The area(s) around Yellowstone have 1 to 3 magnitude on a very regular basis.:eek:

    We have small ones frequently that probably aren't or barely felt. As probably a lot of areas have.

    This one, about 150 mile epicenter from us as the crow flies, was felt.

    Kind of feels like riding a bowl of jello.
