Chicago 4.3 Earthquake - Update

A 4.3 earthquake shook an area near Chicago Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported an earthquake hit near Dekalb, Illinois around 5:00 EST this morning.

Several people from South Bend, Walkerton, Mishawaka, North Liberty, and Bass Lake reported they felt the tremor.

Earthquakes of this size can be felt as far away as sixty miles from where it occurred, but rarely causes damage.
