Some WI residents felt East Coast quake Tuesday

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Some folks in Wisconsin are still abuzz over the earthquake that hit the East Coast Tuesday.

People in downtown Milwaukee felt something shake when the tremor hit just before 1 p.m.

UW-Whitewater said the quake was registered on its seismometer. UW-Milwaukee normally gets intensity readings when an earthquake is felt in the Badger State – but its seismograph was down Tuesday for repairs.

Tuesday’s tremor registered at 5.9, and was centered south of Washington D.C. near Mineral Virginia.

Wisconsin has felt its share of distant earthquakes – most notably a tremor from southern Illinois a few years ago that was felt as far away as Chippewa Falls.

But UW-Green Bay professor Steve Dutch says Wisconsin is one of the least likely places to have its own earthquake. He said the fault lines in the state have had more time to stabilize, and get welded back together.
