As I continue to search for Wedgewood news from 1968, I found an interesting local newspaper article — Saturday morning, November 9, 1968, local residents got all shook up when earth tremors were felt over a 22 state area. The quake occurred shortly after 11 a.m. and lasted 5 minutes. The quake was centered in southern Illinois about 120 miles east of St. Louis and measured 5.5 on the 10 point Richter scale.
