The USGS reported that the estimated depth of the earthquake was 3.6 kilometers.
Kathy Castvens resides in Utica, and she said that the tremors woke her up.
“Okay, I woke up because of an earthquake, which you don’t really think about because when you’re feeling it, you don’t know what you’re feeling,” she said. “But it lasted about six seconds. It started with a light shake, then heavy, then light again.”
The LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office stated that they have received calls from people who felt the tremors, but there have been no reports of damage.
