EARTHQUAKE!!!! Felt in Central Kentucky!

At 5:36 this morning the Earth really did move under my feet!

We're OK! Riley the Wonder Dog actually lifted her head up to see what was rattling!

The dishes rattled in the cupboards and it felt like a caravan of trucks, hauling logs were bouncing by my house.

CNN reports: There were no immediate reports of major damage after the predawn quake, which struck at 4:36 a.m. (5:36 a.m. ET), but some minor damage was seen in the region.

Debris fell on a sidewalk and shattered in Louisville, Kentucky, after part of a cornice fell off a brick building, according to footage from the city's CNN affiliate WHAS-TV.

The epicenter of the earthquake -- the strongest in the region in 40 years -- was about seven miles below ground and 38 miles north-northwest of Evansville, Indiana, the USGS said. Map »

Nearly 10,000 people had sent reports of shaking to the USGS Web site by 9 a.m. ET.

Holy cow Jean! I was shocked to hear that on Fox News this morning! Boy, that's too close for comfort. Glad you're okay and it didn't disturb Riley the Wonderdog too much. :> )

OOOH! I sure do not like earthquakes. Been through a few of them myself, one from 1992 when my folks and I lived in San Francisco, and that sure left me feeling very uneasy. It would be scary to be woken up by one, I would imagine.

Hi Jean!
Thank You for stopping by my blog. That was sweet of you. :-)

Oh My Goodness, I am so happy to hear that you didn't get any damage from the earthquake. We have had very small one here in Western New York where I live. Appearantly, we are on a fault also. Lets keep our fingers crossed that the Earth dosn't move under our feet for a really long time! Blessings to you!

Alex, my cat, awakened me by sitting on and clawing my chest moments before we felt the first quake here in Louisville.

good golly miss molly! i dont know whats worse... earthquakes or tornadoes!!

Scientists say one of the worst faults lies in southern Missouri - let's hope we never have to test that theory!

So glad you are alright Beanie.
