Small Earthquake “Strikes” Off the New Jersey Coast
Anyone feel that Saturday morning? Probably not.
The United States.Geological Survey says that an earthquake occurred about 37 miles off the south New Jersey coast a little before 10 a.m. Saturday morning. If you had no idea, then you're probably not alone. The USGS says the quake was only around 2.0 on the Richter scale
NBC reports that the exact location is around 37 miles east-southeast of the town of Brigantine.
The USGS says the earthquake happened around 4 miles below the surface. Not surprisingly, there were no reports from residents who actually felt the quake. There was no reports of damage.
There was also no tsunami threat, for a quake so small would probably only produce a small splash of water.
