These are the facts: On October 4, 2010 at 8:30AM, the ground shook, a loud noise was heard and a large crack appeared in the woods north of Menominee, in the Upper Peninsula. Menominee is located Lake Michigan's Green Bay, right on the Michigan/Wisconsin border. There is no earthquake fault in the area.

According to, the next day, local residents found a newly formed ridge in the area, 7 feet high and 30 feet wide. At the top of the ridge was a crack in the earth 360 feet long and 5 feet deep. Roots of trees had been ripped apart and separated.

Researchers at Michigan Tech now think they know what happened. It's called a "limestone bulge".
