The U.S. Geographical Survey is reporting that a magnitude 3.8 quake hit near Albion, Illinois near the IN border.

A strong natural disaster has rocked the capital of Mexico, rattling buildings on Tuesday (local time).

The quake struck on the anniversary of a deastating quake in 1985 that killed thousands of people in the city.

"Any severe damage would be pretty unlikely", said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Zachary Reeves, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The worldwide airport in Mexico City suspended operations after a massive natural disaster on Tuesday, Luis Felipe Puente, head of the National Civil Protection Service said.
