We had a magnitude 2.6 earthquake here last night.  Around 9:30 PM PST.  That's what I heard on the news anyway.  We were eating a late dinner and watching TV and didn't feel a thing.  Earthquakes though... wow.  Now that's truly not Midwest.  From the Oregonian:

The Portland area was hit by a small earthquake at 9:34 p.m. Sunday that rattled houses throughout the city.

The magnitude 2.6 quake occurred about 10 miles beneath the earth's surface under the center of the city, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Reports came from throughout the city from residents who felt the earthquake. Some in Northeast Portland felt a marked shaking. The quake also was felt in the West and Southwest areas, as well as downtown.
