What’s that shaking? New Jersey feels earthquake in Delaware
A small but powerful earthquake in Delaware on Thursday afternoon was felt across New Jersey.
The 4.4 magnitude earthquake was reported 4:47 p.m. about 10 miles northeast of Dover, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The tremor was felt across the Delaware Bay in South Jersey — and as far north as Morris County.
"I personally felt it," West Windsor Police Chief Robert Garofalo said in a message to the community. "Please only use 911 if there are emergencies and not to report damage."
The USGS reported that the earthquake was not powerful enough to cause serious property damage or injuries.
