Earthquake in Indiana, no damage, 4.2 Magnitude

A magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck north-central Indiana on Thursday, according to the US Geological Survey.
The quake struck just before 8 a.m. ET and was 3 miles deep, according to the USGS.
The epicenter was located about 15 miles east-southeast of Kokomo, 15 miles west-southwest from Marion and 50 miles north of Indianapolis.

There were no reports of damage in Indianapolis, but closer to the epicenter residents reported being rattled.
“Funny, I thought one of my kids ran into a wall, and lo and behold, it was just a 4.2-magnitude earthquake in Indiana,” one person wrote on Twitter.
