A few of you might have felt a shake late last night as a minor earthquake shook parts of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. It was registered as a 2.4-magnitude quake that happened just before 10 p.m. last night.
At first the earthquake was said to be located in southern Wisconsin near Lake Shangrlia. Now the USGS says the quake happened in McHenry County just 2 miles east of the city of McHenry.
Very light shakes were reported inChicago, Marengo and inWoodstock.
