CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (AP) - The mayor of an eastern Wisconsin city that's been dealing with scores of unexplained booms plans to order T-shirts commemorating a minor earthquake that might be linked to the mystery.
Clintonville Mayor Judy Magee is planning to order T-shirts that say, "I Survived the 1.5." That's a reference to the 1.5-magnitude earthquake that federal geologists confirm struck Tuesday just after midnight.
The tiny quake could explain some of the mysterious booms, described as sounding like thunder or fireworks. However, the bulk of the booms occurred in the pre-dawn hours Sunday and Monday.
City Administrator Lisa Kuss says the shirts are intended to show unity, not to make light of the situation. She tells the Shawano Leader that Clintonville is proud to be a great town with charm and personality.
