I have an aunt and my close cousins live there. It seems like this has happened near there before.

Town chuckles over quake

By Thursday morning Philly Grill owners Rich and Debbie Cox were already advertising an "earthquake burger special" — a regular hamburger with hashbrowns and salad for $6.99.

Regulars at the grill described the earthquake as not much more than a minor scare.

Tom Smiley, an American Family Insurance agent, said he had been getting e-mails and calls from co-workers in Omaha asking if he was selling earthquake insurance.

Smiley said that, at first, he thought the City of Auburn might be dumping large amounts of snow outside his house, and the tractor's bucket fell to the ground too quickly.

At the Cox home, Debbie said that she heard what sounded like a large explosion, but there wasn't enough trembling to shake the snow off the roof. "My daughter came flying out of her bedroom and said, "Mom, what was that?"

Her daughter's boyfriend, who lives in Tecumseh, knew immediately what it was. "He said, 'It's probably just an earthquake. We live on the Humboldt fault line.'"

Incredibly, some people are reporting the quake motion more than 100 miles away was as strong as those near the epicenter (further proof that some people need to quit smoking crack)

Dishes rattled and buildings shook in the Schuyler area Thursday morning as a 3.3 magnitude earthquake rumbled up from one of the Midlands' many unmapped faults.

I didn't feel anything around here but on the NBC news tonight, I think they said there have been several quakes in that Kansas/OK area in just the last two weeks. They had like 90 that registered at 2.0 this year alone.

Right on schedule for our annual earthquake. It was felt in Lawrence, KS today. Nothing big but people felt it and reported dish rattling.

Looks like it was a 4.7 epicenter in Northern Oklahoma.

Mild Earthquake Shakes Central Nebraska
The U.S. Geological Survey website says the 3.5 magnitude quake struck just after 10 a.m. about 10 miles northeast of Broken Bow in Custer County. No damage or injuries have been reported.

Kinkaider Brewing Company says their bottling was not disrupted :cheers:
