Today is the anniversary of a day that shook Southwest Michigan. Literally.
On May 2nd, 2015 Kalamazoo experienced it's 2nd highest magnitude earthquake in Michigan's history. No injuries were reported after this 4.2 earthquake.
According to the Detroit Free Press,
John Bellini, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., said the earthquake's epicenter was about 5 miles south of Galesburg, or 9 miles southeast of Kalamazoo in central Michigan.
In 1947 Michigan had a 4.6 magnitude earthquake. The epicenter was very close to 2015's earthquake.
