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.https://scontent-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/s403x403/1441232_10151941160826760_1844811187_n.jpg” width=”403″ height=”236″ />8 minutes ago
