Earthquake

OMG...early Friday morning about 4:30a.m. our bed started to shake. At first I thought my husband was shivering since I like to sleep with the room really cold. We were both awake and my husband said "I think we just had an earthquake." Chloe, our dog, ran under the bed and soon after Kyle woke up whining. The only item we could find out of place was a glass in our china cabinet, but eveything else seems fine. Very scary!!
The strange thing is my husband and I were just talking about earthquakes a few weeks ago and I was asking him if it was possible to have one here in St. Louis. Too weird!!
Any other readers experienced earthquakes..if so where and how horrible was it? I have attached a Yahoo news story below, but I'm sure there will be plenty of other articles as well.
ETA (Edited to Add): At 10:15 a.m. there was a 4.5 aftershock. I was in the exam room at the vet's office so I didn't feel this one. I also heard there were 5 other aftershocks before 7 a.m. this morning, but since they were less than a 3.5 they were not felt.
As the saying goes, "There's a first time for everything."

Man that was a scary thing to wake up to this morning. I did not enjoy that one bit!

I heard the aftershock more than I felt it really. I was in my family room and all the glasses in my bar started shaking again and my dog freaked out. I was on the phone with my mom when it happened and she said she could hear the phone making these wierd clicking noises. Don't know if that was a coincidence or what....
