Did you feel the earthquake last night?

Me neither. But don’t feel bad. For all the stir today, it doesn’t seem many people felt, or at least were alarmed by, the event.

A 2.4 magnitude earthquake centered in McHenry, Illinois occurred about 9:55 p.m. Monday night, according to the United States Geological Survey.

As of  noon today, about 10 people from Kenosha County have reported to the USGS that they felt the quake  — one in Kenosha and two in Pleasant Prairie.

But I found another fact perhaps even more telling. Kenosha County Joint Dispatch received no calls relating to the quake last night, said Sgt. Bill Beth, Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department spokesman.
