Earthquake Indiana 2010

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, December 30, 2010

I was sitting at my computer and the desk started shaking and the walls rattled. It was 7:56 and I knew I had just experienced an earthquake. It was not as strong as the one that was felt here two years ago that had its epicenter in Illinois, but apparently it lasted longer (about 15 seconds).

I was watching the news, Fox 59 and they weren’t phased at all. After the commercial break they asked if all the people calling in about a possible earthquake would cease from calling because their system was overloaded. A magnitude 4.2 earthquake did indeed hit 46 miles away in northern Indiana. Later the USGS downgraded the quake to a 3.8. My first earthquake. Just thought I would blog about it.
