MILWAUKEE (AP) — A small earthquake that shook northern Illinois was also felt by residents in southern Wisconsin early Wednesday.
Sharon Holmes in Salem says her TV stopped working and her cupboards made a noise and shook.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the 3.8-magnitude earthquake hit near Virgil, about 50 miles northwest of Chicago, at 4 a.m.
The Kane County Sheriff’s Department in Illinois received scores of phone calls, but there are no reports of injuries or serious damage.
One person from Milwaukee told WTMJ-TV she felt the floor moving and shaking and thought it could have been a snow plow dropping a blade.
