I didn't feel anything, and never have. If you have to ask yourself, "Is this an earthquake?" then it probably isn't forceful enough to cause any damage.

I have felt the earth quiver a few times while living here in Kansas. Just the other day it was around 9am I felt the whole building vibrating and noticed the computer screen vibrating as well. At first I thought I was dizzy then when I saw the screen vibrating I knew it wasn't me. It was the earth. So it's real out here.

We have New Madrid to the east and Humboldt to the west. New Madrid is definitely a threat, but Humboldt could be bad news for anyone downstream of Tuttle Creek Reservoir.
