Yellow triangle with "earthquake"

Residents of west-central Indiana were surprised by a 3.8 magnitude earthquake the afternoon of June 17, 2021!  The quake was felt throughout a wide area of west-central Indiana and east central Illinois.  Little or no damage has been reported, but the tremor was a reminder that earthquakes can and do happen in Indiana.

We have assembled some resources below to provide more information about earthquake preparation and response.
