Earthquake Rattles New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts

he U.S. Geological Survey reported an earthquake in upstate New York Wednesday that was felt across the region.

The magnitude 3.1 quake was reported at 6:43 a.m. just southwest of the Village of South Glens Falls which is about 200 miles north of Manhattan.

People across central New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts and as far south as Long Island, NY reported feeling the temblor.

A few reports to the USGS claimed the earthquake was even felt in New Jersey.

The quake which lasted about four of five seconds shook homes in the Glens Falls region.

“At first I thought it was a log truck that went ripping by,” Warrensburg resident Jim Coughlin told the Post Star. “Then I got an alert from my weather app that it was an earthquake.”

There were no injuries or damage reported from the earthquake, which had a depth of just over eight miles below the surface.

Most reports indicate shaking was light.

The quake hit in an area just east of the Adirondack Mountains.
