Earthquake in Ill.
Lighter sleepers — I’m not usually included in that lot — were shaken awake by the tremors from a 5.2 earthquake 150 miles away at 4:37 a.m. this morning.
The earthquake’s epicenter was estimated to be six miles northwest of Mount Carmel, according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earthquake Web site.
Aftershocks were felt as far away as Grand Rapids, Mich. The latest aftershock about 10:15 a.m. had a magnitude of 4.2, according to the USGS.
My mom said it woke her. Troy, how about you guys … too far away?
