Small Earthquake Detected Near Detroit
An earthquake centered 33 miles from Detroit recorded a 2.6 on the Richter scale.
The earthquake was detected on May 14, 2017 by the United States Geological Survey in Leamington, Canada.
The earthquake was centered 5 kilometers below the earth's surface. Small seismic activity is not unheard of in the area. From 2011 - 2013 there were three small earthquakes recorded in the same area registering a 3.0, 2.1 and 2.5 on the Richter scale.
Michigan saw a similar seismic recording on Drummond Island on June 28, 2016, when an explosion at a mining operation registered a 2.7 on the Richter scale.
None of these recordings are enough to expect to see any damage. In fact, they are barely considered earthquakes. The USGS says "Earthquakes with magnitude of about 2.0 or less are usually called microearthquakes. They are not commonly felt by people and are generally recorded only on local seismographs."
