Black Friday Begins With An Earthquake In South Jersey

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Black Friday began with a bang in New Jersey — literally.

The U.S. Geological Survey’s website says a 2.1-magnitude earthquake was measured near Clementon, about 15 miles southeast of Philadelphia in Camden County.

The quake was felt at a little after midnight.

It was the second earthquake to hit New Jersey this month. On Nov. 5, a 2.0-magnitude quake struck the Ringwood area in Passaic County.

A rare 5.8-magnitude East Coast earthquake centered in Virginia rattled New Jersey in August 2011, wobbling floors and shaking buildings.
