A year and a half ago, we mentioned an area minor earthquake here on the blog. Today’s was a little bit bigger – 5.2 on the richter scale, about 120 miles east of St. Louis at about 4:36am. I (Orin) don’t know if Shannon felt anything another 120 miles or so west, but we got woken up and lightly bounced around for probably 20 seconds or so. No damage, I guess, except one road near our house had a bit of crumbling concrete (see the picture). Read more here.
