GILBERTS — A small earthquake woke residents and shook furniture in northern Illinois early Wednesday, causing no major damage or injuries but startling people as far away as Michigan and Iowa. The epicenter of the 3.8-magnitude earthquake was near the villages of Gilberts and Pingree Grove in Kane County, about 45 miles northwest of Chicago, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake hit at 4 a.m. Sheriff’s dispatchers and the USGS were flooded with calls, mostly from residents saying they’d felt the quake. more at link: http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/article_25093028-1646-11df-9cc6-001cc4c002e0.html Anyone else from the Northern Illinois area feel this one? I'll admit I did and I knew right away what it was. They always feel weird because we don't have them that often. This is the third time I can recall feeling one. My son slept right through it, but it woke my mother and my 15 yr old nephew as well, and they too knew exactly what it was.
