39. Felt that here in Davenport, Iowa.
I just went online to see if anyone else felt an aftershock and sure enough...That's the first earthquake activity I've felt since I was a young child living in Pennsylvania in the early 80s. I always suspect an explosion before an earthquake, because I've never lived in a very earthquake-prone area before.
