How bad was it for the people that live close to where it started.
We got a little shake in Mi. I think it is more in Indydebi neck of the woods at least that what they said on the news.

It was actually in the "toe" of Indiana and I'm in the middle, but it woke us up and the things hanging on my wall were shaking. Even tho' I was half asleep, it seemed to last awhile .... 10 or 15 seconds (count that out .... that's a LONG time for your walls to shake!). WTHR, Channel 13, news website reports this is the biggest quake in the midwest in 40 years.

The blogs on the news sites are reporting aftershocks in Indpls downtown offices at about 11:00-11:15 a.m. today, some lasting 15 seconds or more.

I've heard it said for YEARS that the biggest fault in the U.S. is NOT in California but runs right thru the midwest, Indiana is right on it. I seem to remember seeing a map when I was younger that showed Tennessee sitting on a BIG portion of it.

leahs it Louisville might be closer to the epicenter of it than I am.
