Today's flight 2940 doesn't depart for another 3.5 hours.

Are you sure the tweet wasn't referencing Monday's MQ2940, which diverted to CMI while enroute to ORD from DFW? http://avherald.com/h?article=465ca4bd&opt=0

....Eagle flight 2940 did divert on the 22nd to Springfield, MO.

It appears this was a couple of days ago, just one engine shutdown resulting in a diversion.
