A magnitude 3.8 earthquake was detected near Albion, Illinois, around 7:47 a.m. Tuesday, according to a release from IU's Indiana Geological and Water Survey.
Albion is in a county that borders Indiana on its southwest side. According to data on the U.S. Geological Survey's website, the earthquake was felt as far as Bloomington. It occurred at a depth of 7.25 miles, according to the IGS statement.
“Moderately frequent earthquakes occur at irregular intervals along the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone and can often be felt great distances from the source,” Polly Sturgeon, IGS Outreach Coordinator, said in the release. “Citizens should practice preparedness and be ready for quakes in this region.”
According to the USGS website, earthquakes that occur east of the Rocky Mountains can be felt in an area as much as 10 times larger than a similar earthquake west of the mountain range.
