Feeling shaky? It's not you. Earthquakes are on the rise again in Kansas

If you feel like the ground's been moving around a little more than usual, it's not your imagination.

April has brought a spate of small earthquakes to rattle your china as an underground pressure wave slowly creeps northward from the Oklahoma border region toward Hutchinson.

In fact, the U.S. and Kansas geological surveys have recorded more felt earthquakes in Kansas this month than in the first three months of the year put together.

The USGS picks up quakes from about 2.5 magnitude on up, roughly the threshold where people at ground level notice the shaking. A more comprehensive catalog of April's quakes will be available from the Kansas Geological Survey by about mid-May after a data review.
