I just thought I'd post this Illinois Earthquake. . . or is this the second one that's now struck up there in Illinois? Because I seem to recall one that was felt in St. Louis this week, also!!! Maybe there's a big one coming for that already occasionally shaky Illinois Region! Now I remember, this one struck at like 2am so there is virtually NO Felt Report I suppose everybody was probably sleeping!

2.5 - 11km NW of Mount Carmel, Illinois

Right this moment I'm planning a trip to that "Moravitz Car Launch" as seen on "Tru-TV" where they launch the cars off that cliff!!! Takes place way up in the Northern Regions of the Mid-West and so I'm leaving immediately after work Friday. . . that is if nobody volunteers to fill-in for me! At this point there's no knowing if we'll be doing "Earthquake Minute" so I will just add an update when I get home from "Up North" whenever as well as probably some pics from the big Car Launch Day, too! Gates open at 10am, first car launched at Noon on Saturday!!! See You There!!1 EQ Guy

There's a lot of my very best earthquake stuff in My E-Book, "Bringing Earthquakes To Life" @ Thank-You For Reading!!! EQ Guy

In the event you're reading this because you heard "Earthquake Minute" on one of the big Radio Networks somewhere, I have a page with all my "Bio Information" from my EQ Radio Show@ and it will have a lot of answers and some of my best stuff! Thank-You For Listening, Too!!! EQ Guy
