    It woke me up at about 5:40a. I was in bed, and felt my bed shaking, just a little bit. I thought my dog was trying to climb into the bed (which she never does), then I looked up and she was laying across the room. I said to myself, "must have been an earthquake." I am in Michigan, about 50 miles South of Detroit, 5 miles N of Toledo.

    It happened about 540am, I was sitting here reading the threads and all of a sudden the house started to shake and the windows rattled and the dog came a running to my feet, I just thought it was the wind then the radio said that we are having a quake, I wouldnt have beleived it, if it hadnt been for the radio saying thats what it was, cause we get some pretty high winds here, but we dont get too many winds that make the windows rattle. No harm done here. All is well................Thanks.............

    The quake hit Illinois and the tremors were felt about 350 miles away. It was 5.4 on the rictor scale. We pray that no one got hurt. [​IMG]

    We live in west Michigan and there are reports of it being felt here also. I woke up and looked at the clock at the time it was happening, but did not feel anything.
