Last night we were having some heavy storms in Northwest Arkansas and when that happens my husband and I always keep an eye on the weather as we live in a trailer house and it's a good idea to know if there are tornadoes possible. Well Rodney and I went to bed about 10:30 and around 11 pm the roof shifted and made a creaking noise that made us both shoot straight up out of bed, both of us immediately thought it was a tornado and got up to watch the weather. Watched the weather and decided everything was ok, but still freaked out about the noise our roof made as we had never heard it do that before. 
Come to find out today there was an earthquake in central Arkansas last night about 11 pm a 4.7 magnitude. and that was what Rodney and I felt. It has been felt up to 500 miles from the center.

Strange things are afoot beneath the surface in the Ozarks...
Earthquakes like this are NOT normal for us, at least not for us in NW Arkansas, this is the first one I've ever felt and have lived here all my life.
