4.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rumbles DC Area

The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting that there has been an natural disaster along the East Coast, which was felt by some people in the New York City area.

A magnitude 4.1 quake has struck the US in a rare seismological occurrence for the northeast, the US Geological Survey said. The magnitude falls under the category of "light" on the Richter scale, with noticeable shaking but zero to minimal damage.

The quake, previously reported at magnitude 5.1 and then at 4.4, was centred in the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge on Thursday.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

Thursday's quake was felt as far north as NYC and as far south as the D.C. area. The natural disaster was felt along the East Coast, including in Philadelphia, New York and even southwest CT.

The U.S. Geological Service reported intensity levels - a different measurement than magnitude - ranging from 3 (weak) to 5 (moderate) throughout Delaware.

"Aftershocks are a possibility with this quake", said Caruso.
