An Evansville, Indiana meteorologist was doing a weathercast when the earthquake hit. You can watch it online. The guy was amazing. He acknowledged the shaking and then continued his forecast. After the forecast he talked about earthquakes both generally and with specific information about the fault lines in his area. He was so together. He knew his stuff and he knew how to pronounce "New Madrid" correctly.

This just in: They just had a 4.5 aftershock.

I was sitting at my computer when it hit.

Cat? No. Washing machine spinning? No. Tornado (window had rattled)? No. Hmmm... must be an earthquake. Cool!

This is the third time I can remember feeling an earthquake in Indiana.

That's so cool. I've slept through two 4.0's, and I felt a 2.0, but it was really tiny.

I'd like to feel a 5.0.

How do you pronounce it?

I can pronounce the Old Madrid perfectly but this New Madrid stuff just baffles me.

I wish I could be so cool under fire. He must have taken Meteorology 314, "how to weather a storm!"
