I was awakened during the night by a deep rocking sensation. I didn't think it could possibly be an earthquake, and according to the sisters here, all of whom (except me!) have experienced earthquakes in Alaska and southern California, what we felt this morning was just a tremor... but it was good enough to count as my first earthquake. I still do not know any specifics, so I prayed for the people who may have been deeply affected near the epicenter (wherever that was). I hear that the many high rises under construction here will all have to have their cranes checked to make sure they are still secure...
Did anyone else get awakened by the earthquake? Where do you live?

Yes, it woke me up about 5:45 local time here in South Bend. I've lived in southern Cal, so it wasn't my first earthquake, but it was really weird to experience one in Indiana.
