A compact earthquake was felt and listened to in Tuckerton, Little Egg Harbor and neighboring communities at 7:52 on Wednesday early morning.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, it registered as a 2.4-magnitude quake, was at a depth of 3.1 miles, and was centered in Tuckerton.
Many men and women reported experience or hearing the quake on the Tiny Egg Harbor Law enforcement Section Fb web site.
“Definitely felt this and read it on Region Club Blvd., just assumed FAA or Warren Grove was performing tests someplace,” wrote a single particular person.
“Great confirmation because my hubby believed my daughter and I were nuts,” mentioned a lady.
“I felt anything but I didn’t assume it was an earthquake,” explained an additional.
“I felt in LEH. Off golf class,” study another remark.
“I was questioning why I heard one thing transfer upstairs,” a person reported.
No damage was quickly noted. The shaking, rumbling and length of Wednesday’s quake have been nowhere near the level of a 5.8-magnitude quake felt in New Jersey on Aug. 23, 2011. That quake was centered in Virginia and was powerful more than enough to problems the Washington Monument and to be felt in southeastern Canada. —R.M.
