Weird: Nebraska Just Had a Fairly Significant Earthquake
Here's something you don't see every day. Nebraska just had an earthquake and it was surprisingly strong for that area.
The UTC time translates into around 10:25 am our time this morning. A 4.2 earthquake is technically referred to as a "light" quake. While it's capable of rattling dishes and other indoor items if you're close enough to it, it's not likely to do any real damage.
I find it interesting that within just a few minutes of the quake being reported by the USGS, already 7 people contacted them reporting that they felt it.
Nebraska isn't normally thought of as a real seismically active region. Is this the beginning of something or just a freak occurrence? Check out the USGS site for more info on this shaker.
