But Indiana doesn’t have Earthquakes.
I can’t find any Faults thru here.
The only damage I can see within range of my 12x zoom is lying on roofs ..

I'm not aware of 'Faults' in or across the UK either but ...

"Small-scale earthquakes are a normal occurrence around the British Isles.
Quakes are frequently recorded in the North Sea, but only the bigger ones can be felt on land.
According to data from the British Geological Survey (BGS), there have been around 10 seismic events in the British Isles in the last 30 days.
Most of these have been below a magnitude of three; the quake at Coniston in Cumbria was a magnitude 3.6 event.
Based on historical data the UK can expect an earthquake of magnitude 3.7 about once every year. Quakes of magnitude 4.7 or larger occur in the UK about once every 10 years."

But we're not used to Quakes around here .. This is really a news event for us.
My phone won't quit ringing .. And my Email is filling up.
I thought there had to be a Fault Line nearby

Wow! I guess I will give my mom a call today, she still lives in Kokomo.
I don't remember any earthquakes when I was growing up there, but the 1965 Palm Sunday tornados were wild!

I felt one a couple years ago .. Thought a blast of wind hit my garage door while I was in the garage.
But it wasn't windy outside.
This one was centered around St Louis ... Didn't know what it as till I saw the news.

I knew what this one was .. Now, We're waiting on the aftershock.

twisters too. In fact, I was part of a volunteer group that went up there, and helped to clean up the mess! Was between Kokomo and the Fort Wayne areas, where we helped out. What devastation there was!

On TV this morning, They showed several short fault lines nearby.
The one that caused this quake looked to be about 20 miles long and is a little too close for comfort.
I tried to find the fault pic on WRTV .. But got tired of all the ads they were throwing at me.

Where I worked (Plant 10) The walls were separated by the Palm Sunday tornado.
We'd occasionally have Snow Drifts inside.
Yes .. Russiaville IN was almost wiped off the map.

I think the new madres fault is around the St Louis Area .. And it shook here a couple of years ago .. slightly.
I didn't really know what it was till I watched the news .. Then there was a smaller aftershock.

When this one hit, My first thought was ..
If this is around the St Louis area .. I wonder how much is still standing.
I never expected it to be centered about 10 miles away .. Still waiting on an Aftershock.
But Indiana never does anything right.
