Moderate Earthquake Rattles East Coast, Including New York And Jersey
An earthquake centered in the state of Delaware shook up parts of the east coast from New Jersey to New York. Officially a 4.4 in magnitude, the earthquake officially struck at 4:45 pm as the sun had set for most in the region. The earthquake’s epicenter was east to north-east of Dover, Delaware by only six miles.
Parts of Pennsylvania and even Connecticut reported shaking. Twitter users in the region immediately noted the shaking.
There are no reports of damages or injuries. Regions which are considered less seismically active remain areas of concern for residents. Residents in the Midwest have long been warned about the New Madrid fault which is considered a major threat to both the Midwest and East coast. A major earthquake on the East coast or in the Midwest could cause severe damage and loss of life.
