What Was That Rumble? Officials Confirm 4.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits … – CBS Local

KALAMAZOO (WWJ) – If you thought you felt an earthquake on Saturday — you did. And It was one of the strongest quakes ever experienced in Michigan.

Officials with the United States Geological Survey said an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0 and a depth of focus of 5.9 km was measured around 12:23 p.m. about nine miles southeast of Kalamazoo.

Multiple residents in several different regions beyond Kalamazoo — from Mount Pleasant and Sterling Heights to Lansing and even as far as Cleveland, Ohio — reported feeling a rumble and the ground shake for between five and 10 seconds.

No damage or injuries have been reported.

The strongest earthquake in Michigan history was a 4.6 magnitude in nearly the exact same location in 1947.
