MILFORD, N.J. (CBS/AP) — Did you feel it? A small earthquake was felt early Thursday in parts of northwestern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, though no damage or injuries were reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 2.1 magnitude quake occurred just before 7 a.m. in Milford, New Jersey, the same area where a smaller quake had occurred in August.
Thursday’s earthquake was felt throughout most of Hunterdon County in New Jersey and in parts of Bucks and Northampton counties in Pennsylvania, officials said.
Roughly a dozen people reported that the tremor shook their houses but didn’t cause any damage.
Some took to social media after feeling the earthquake.
Did anyone feel the earth shake slightly this morning? We apparently had a 2.1 magnitude earthquake (centered again 11 miles south of Easton)
