Nearby earthquake today

Today’s earthquake, centered roughly 85 miles north of Fort Wayne in southern Michigan, was felt by some residents in places near the state line, like Angola, Howe and Fremont.  There was also a report of the earthquake in Montpelier, OH.  The quake occurred at 11:42 AM. With a magnitude 3.3 earthquake, “shaking” of buildings is common, but little damage occurs. The US Geological Survey classifies this earthquake as an “aftershock” from the more powerful 4.2 quake that struck in southwestern Michigan early in May.
