5.6 Magnitude Oklahoma Earthquake Felt in North Illinois

The earthquakes that recently occurred in Oklahoma were felt all the way north near Chicago! While the maximum shaking appears to have been felt right around the epicenter near Oklahoma city, there was weak to light shaking in Missouri, Illinois felt. With all the earthquake news, you might be wondering how many there were.
A total of 21 earthquakes were recorded in the last day from this general epicenter just to the east of Oklahoma City. Aftershocks will likely continue for a few days but taper off and eventually stop (unless another big earthquake hits) within a week.
