"Whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on"- but it’s not an earthquake

  • USGS has designated the trembler as a “QUARRY BLAST”, placing it at 3.7 on the Richter Scale. Here’s what our WGN assignment desk is telling us:
    Hodgkins Police NOW tell me that the Hansen Materials confirmed they did do a “shot” blast at 12:40 PM. This appears to have measured a 3.7 on the seismic scale according to the USGS who is now also calling it a quarry blast.

    Police say they initially were told there was no work being done.
