WABASH VALLEY, Ind. (WTHI) - If you felt the earth shake on Thursday afternoon, you weren't alone.
The United States Geological Survey has confirmed an earthquake centered in the Wabash Valley.
It happened at 3:18 Thursday afternoon, and its epicenter was in northern Parke County.
The USGS said it was a 3.8 magnitude earthquake.
The epicenter was about two miles west of Bloomingdale or about five miles northwest of Rockville.
The USGS now reports the depth of the quake was about 4.8 miles below the surface.
On social media, the Parke County Sheriff's Office says there are no reports of any damage at this point.
A 3.8 magnitude earthquake is fairly low on the scale, but Storm Team 10 says it is something we rarely see in the Wabash Valley.
Earthquakes happen every four to five years in this region. The last decent-sized earthquake happened on September 9, 2017.
Storm Team 10 will continue to follow this story.
