Noblesville, Indiana, Earthquake at 7:56 am

I believe I just experienced an earthquake at our office in Noblesville, Indiana, 46060, at 7:56 am. I’m on the forth floor of a brick hospital and I could clearly feel the building shake for about three seconds, though it didn’t shake hard enough for anything to fall or break.

  33. I woke up to the shaking (Fort Wayne) which rattled my bedroom windows and my bottle collection, it lasted about 7 seconds. However, after there was a vibrating feeling for about 10 more seconds or so. It felt like a couple of full loaded simi truck had passed by. The dog jumped off the bed and was a bit freaked out but I was more in interest than frightened.
