Indiana earthquake: a 'very loud boom'

[Update 12:14 p.m.:] The U.S. Geological Survey has downgraded the earthquake from a 4.2 magnitude to a 3.8 magnitude.

[Original post] Debra Sholty was just opening up her business Thursday morning in Kokomo, Indiana, when a magnitude 4.2 earthquake rumbled through the north-central part of the state.

"It was like a huge explosion under your feet," said Sholty, the owner of Hobson Cleaners.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake struck just before 8 a.m. ET and was three miles deep. Its epicenter was located about 15 miles east-southeast of Kokomo, and 50 miles north of Indianapolis.

    @veritas if god were as compassionate as all say no one would be left from "the loop". seriously i live in a country that has freedom of religion but that sure doesn't mean i want to be preached to. get over yourself religious or not all men are created equal this truth is self evident.

    by the way no one controls your thoughts and feelings. take responsibility for yourself. when the crap hits the fan the true heroes help others not only themselves this is human spirit no god gave u this. then you all shall see who is worthy of an after life.

    Only one is worthy ..Jesus..He is compassionate...u have a choice is that not compassionate...everyone does a good deed every once in a while but u also do bad..God is not impressed with works but with faith in the bible and learn the truth...

    Every time something happens, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc... some people are talking sbout how there is no God. If you would open your mind and read the Bible you would see as plain as the nose on your face that tbe end is here, not coming but ig is at any day, any time. May you all find your way. This is no joking matter by any means. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

    I said to believe in the one true God, not Jesus! Remember that part in the ten commandments where I said not to worship anything of this earth? Well there you go worshiping Muhammad and Jesus. Always skip the middleman in business and religion! That's free advice. Now about this quake....
