Hearing about a 4.5 off of STJ about 20 or 30 mins ago. In STX, we didn't feel anything. Any field reports?

Sorry. Should have been more clear. I got the email, too. Wondering if anyone actually felt it?

It looks like you guys had 10+ earthquakes in the last 24 hours or so and activity had been picking up for a week+. The strongest was 4.9 and a 4.6 near Jost last night. Any damage?
