4.2 magnitude earthquake strikes Michigan, shaking Midwest – strongest quake ever to hit the state

 Michigan 4
May 2015KALAMAZOO, Mich. – If you thought you felt an earthquake on Saturday — you did. And it was one of the strongest quakes ever experienced in Michigan. Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the United States Geological Survey, said an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.2 and a depth of focus of 5.9 km was measured around 12:23 p.m. about nine miles southeast of Kalamazoo, near Galesburg. Dozens of residents in several different regions beyond Kalamazoo — from Mount Pleasant and Sterling Heights to Lansing and even as far as Cleveland, Ohio — called the WWJ Newsroom and reported feeling a rumble and the ground shake for between five and 10 seconds.
“Earthquakes of this magnitude are very rare in Michigan,” Caruso told WWJ’s Russ McNamara. “We’ve had reports from Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio of people feeling this earthquake. It’s rare for Michigan to experience earthquakes, but as we were reminded today, it does happen,” Gov. Rick Snyder said in a statement. “There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage because of today’s earthquake, and that’s fortunate because we are acutely aware of the challenges posed by such natural disasters in other parts of the world recently. The Michigan State Police is ready to assist in any emergency that strikes our state.” –Detroit CBS

    Good morning, Alvin: Fine Sunday morning 05.03.15.
    The location of the event and I didn’t followup but I wonder if this quake is located on line from the Madrid Fault that is very popular with Seismic watchers.
    Regarding the great lakes, it has been reported that more ships/people are missing here than in The Bermuda Triangle. Also, salt is mined from under one of the lakes.

    • I know people said Cayce said something about the G Lakes draining. America has s lot of geological hazards – some we know about and others that will become more apparent later. It’s not on the N Madrid fault line though

      geesh, really?
      salt mines?!

      guess someone in charge somewhere in the lakes region made the same mistake that was made in Assumption Parish…. wait for it…

    Good morning, Alvin. There were 2 recorded, heard, & felt eqs in Madison County, Mississippi on Saturday evening as well. A 3.2 & 3.0… My brother said it sounded & shook as if a tree had fallen or a large limb had hit the house. Multiple area reports said 4 tremors but my family only felt 3 & heard 2 of those. (I live 40 miles south so it was quiet for me)

    Mississippi gets random quakes sometimes but this was a first for that county. I can’t help but wonder why…

    • And nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers (different) places.” Matt 24:7

      divers as in “places that never have previously experienced earthquakes” – and for whatever the culprit is for the recent spat of activity along the US Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Oklahoma, Texas, and Michigan (fracking, isostatic adjustment, dormant faults awakening, stress breaks) – we have to admit, this is only a recent phenomena. The planet is becoming more geologically animated, just as I predicted it would be.
