Small earthquake recorded in Michigan, felt miles away

Jun 30, 2015

Geological experts say a small earthquake centered in southern Michigan has been felt in parts of the state.
 
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 3.3-magnitude temblor was recorded Tuesday morning northeast of Union City.
 
As of Tuesday afternoon, state police say no injuries or damage have been reported.
 
The earthquake was centered southeast of Battle Creek, where the Battle Creek Enquirer reports a low rumbling preceded a single jolt.
 
Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage is unlikely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
 
A 4.2-magnitude earthquake was recorded near Galesburg in southwestern Michigan in early May and was felt in other parts of the Upper Midwest. No damage or injuries were reported.
