The nature and extent of the Reelfoot Rift thus is a matter of pressing concern to inhabitants of the central Mississippi Valley. Occasional earthquakes occur in Illinois, particularly in the southern portion. The diversion occurred due to blockage of the Princeton Valley segment of the ancient Mississippi River by the Lake Michigan Lobe, impoundment of glacial Lake Milan, and eventual overflow of the lake southwest of Rock Island across a former drainage divide near Andalusia, ://   Fisk, H.N.,Geological investigation of the alluvial valley of the lower Mississippi River: U.S.

It precedes the Sangamonian Stage and follows the Pre-Illinoian Stage in North America. The Illinoian Stage is defined as the period of geologic time during (stage). In North America, loess was derived from both glacial and nonglacial sources but is commonly related to formerly extensive outwash deposits from the Laurentide ice sheet and to the floodplains of large, braided rivers; sections along the Mississippi River valley may reach 20 m in thickness.

The thickest loess deposits are found in the The buried Mahomet Valley in east-central Illinois is a complex lowland carved into the surface of Pennsylvanian and older rocks.
