Loud boom followed by house shaking

At 1:10 am on 3-9-12, I was in my kitchen with my 2 overnight guests when we heard a very loud booming sound followed by the whole house shaking. I live in Illinois and we have had a few very minor earthquakes here so I have experienced them. This seemed like an earthquake to me! I reported it to the police and they said that nobody else had called them. All the neighbors except for 1 were asleep but this was so loud, how could it not wake up somebody? We are puzzled as to what this could have been caused by. Nobody has any answers and it scares me! Then I Google it and find that other people in other states have had this same thing happen to them! What the hell is going on?
