A 4.3 earthquake hit the western suburbs of Chicago at 3:59 AM this morning, and although police and other emergency phone lines were swamped with phone calls in the aftermath, there were apparently no reports of damages or injuries. A shakemap from the U.S. Geological Survey depicts the epicenter of the earthquake that struck Illinois Wednesday morning. What is a shakemap? Is that like when your spouse crawls back into bed with you at 4:00 AM? I'll probably fill out my will over that one.
