4.3-magnitude earthquake hits near Sycamore Illinois, 45 Miles West of Chicago

Kind of robotic but chock-full of the pertinent info regarding the small quake

Centered about 45 miles from Chicago, 20 from here we had a little trembling this morning, and while up at the time, I didn't feel a thing, but many others not too far from here did. 

Many are unaware, but there's a nasty fault line through the Midwest called the New Madrid fault in Southern Illinois Missouri, etc as the pic indicates. And while it's too early to tell where it originated, the early assumption is that might the case, and this isn't the first,  nor will it be the last earthquake in Illinois.

The epicenter of this morning's quake was near the city where the University of Northern Illinois is located, in De Kalb County, Illinois.

4.3-magnitude earthquake hits near Sycamore

Chicago Breaking News: "A mild earthquake shook northern Illinois this morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 4.3-magnitude quake at 3:59:43 a.m. centered about 5.5 miles east of Sycamore and 3.1 miles underground. The epicenter is about 45 miles west of Chicago.

The quake was felt over a wide area, but there were no reports of any damage 90 minutes later, according to the Kane County and DeKalb County sheriff's departments, which are closest to the epicenter.

The nature of the fault activity that caused the quake was unclear, said Amy Vaughan, a geophysicist with the geological survey in Golden, Colo. Past quakes that have affected southern Illinois have been in the Wabash Valley or New Madrid seismic zones.

The fault systems in northern Illinois are not as well understood as those in other regions where earthquakes are more common, and more investigation will be needed to determine the cause of this morning's temblor, Vaughan said."
