Indiana Quake felt in Kentucky, as far away as TN, WV

The US Geological Survey is reporting that a 5.0 earthquake shook the midwest yesterday. The epicenter was near Evansville, IN, and witnesses as far away as West Virgiana reported feeling the effects of the tremor. (Early reports indicated a possible second epicenter in Paducah, Kentucky, but the USGS later said that southern Indiana was the only epicenter.)

Few residents in Columbia noticed the quake, although experiences were improving with the retelling. "Now that you mention it, I did feel something at about 12:30. I thought it was a truck on the parkway..."
