Yes, a 4.5 Earthquake/Aftershock Just Happened in Illinois, Was Felt in St. Louis, Missouri. Again.

Seriously, I was just on my way to bed, when things started shaking and freaked me out. The St. Louis Livejournal community confirmed I wasn't crazy. And according to the U.S. Geological Survey, it was a 4.5 magnitude earthquake centered five miles northwest of Mt. Carmel, Illinois (and 131 miles away from St. Louis).

That's about as strong as the 4.6 earthquake aftershock that hit the area last Friday morning at around 10:15 a.m., after the 5.2 earthquake that happened a few hours before.

Can't deal with this anymore. Someone hold me.
