So apparently I was just woken up by an earthquake. I don’t recall feeling anything really, just hearing the sound of stuff like my ceiling fan rattling. Scared the crap out of me.

WEST SALEM, Ill. (AP) — A 5.4 earthquake in Illinois has rocked people awake as far away as Indiana, surprising residents unaccustomed to such a large temblor in the Midwest.

The quake just before 4:37 a.m. was centered 6 miles from West Salem, Ill., and 66 miles from Evansville, Ind.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.
