Gentryville, MO / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / single vertical bump / 1-2 s : I live in Gentryville, MO. At approximately the time of the quake I woke from a sound sleep because I thought I heard an explosion. Nothing really shook, but it felt like something had hit the house. When morning came I walked around the outside of the house checking for anything that might have fallen on the roof. There was nothing. Today I read the report of the quake and verified the time. Unless Gentryville actually had an explosion at that moment it must have been the quake.
