    Hi there people, I'm glad to hear all of the comments on "jesus is coming" and stuff, but please, lay off the crack and stop polluting the internet with worthless garbage.

    shortly after 4am on 2/10, I awoke from a sensation of the couch shaking. Both mine and my upstairs neighbors dogs were going bonkers. I wasn't real sure what was going on and just went to bed. Attributed the shaking to a dream. After hearing of the quake yesterday on the news, maybe it was related? I lve in a garden level apartment in complex on a hill suposedly located at the highest point of golden valley, MN.

    I was awake upon returning from the bathroom. I was back in bed and all of a sudden everything shook in my apartment and I live in an upper unit. I thought it was the beginning of the rapture when JESUS returns. I had no fear, but couldn't understand what was going on! I turned on the tv to find out the time and it was exactly 4 am 2-10-10. I knew it was something I had never experienced before in my life time and I am 54 years old!

    hello, I live in Machesney Park and my daughter woke me & my husband up at 4:00 this morning scared to death saying that her window, door, and bed were shaking and she also said that it sounded like someone was pounding on the outside of her room so she came into our room to sleep because she was so scared and when we woke up in the morning we found on the news that it was a earthquake.

    I live in an apartment and I thought it was my neighbors... But then I saw the look on my cats faces. I knew it was something other then my neighbors.
