Earthquake in Illinois? I Blame Global Warming

4.3-magnitude earthquake hits near Sycamore - Chicago Breaking News Small enough and deep enough that no serious damage was reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 4.3-magnitude quake at 3:59:34 a.m. centered about 5.5 miles east of Sycamore and 3.1 miles underground. The epicenter is about 45 miles west of Chicago.

The quake was felt over a wide area, but there were no reports of any damage 90 minutes later, according to the Kane County and DeKalb County sheriff's departments, which are closest to the epicenter.
Stuff falling off of shelves, but I can't find the stereotypical photo of a liquor store with everything on the floor. Maybe later - it is still early in the Midwest.
