Pastor Michael Young of the Paw Paw Seventh-day Adventist Church,said he was talking to his congregation about the devastation in Nepal when the church started to shake. He tried to brush it off unsure of what happened. He said, I don’t know what that is either. So, just act natural, play it off … it’s OK,” and carried on with his speech.

Miles away in Galesburg, Cindy Bristol the owner of a store said she heard a boom.

“The whole building was moving,” Bristol said. “You could see the walls shaking and things on shelves were shaking. Some things fell off of the shelves.”

According to the governor of Michigan “It’s rare for Michigan to experience earthquakes, but as we were reminded today, it does happen,” he continued on his website “There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage because of today’s earthquake, and that’s fortunate because we are acutely aware of the challenges posed by such natural disasters in other parts of the world recently.”
