National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Davis told the Associated Press that his office received calls from sheriff’s departments in Rock, Dane and Kenosha counties looking for information about what happened.
Diane Strozyk, 65, lives in apartment in downtown Milwaukee near the lakefront. Strozyk told the AP she was sleeping and woke up when the tremor hit about 4:37 a.m.
“I felt the shaking for like 20 seconds. I thought I was dreaming. It was like somebody was shaking the bed,” she said.
Initially pegged as a 5.4 earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey revised its estimate to give it a value of 5.2.
The quake was centered six miles from West Salem, Ill., and 66 miles from Evansville, Ind.
