An earthquake occurred in New Jersey, USA, on the morning of the 5th. This earthquake was felt as far away as New York, Connecticut, and Maryland. Shocked residents reported it to the authorities. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a magnitude 4.8 earthquake occurred in Hunterdon County, New Jersey at 10:23 a.m. on this day. The depth of the epicenter was 5.0 km.

The tremors could be felt even in New York City. Marco, a barber living in Queens, New York, said, “At first, I thought it felt like a subway passing by, but it turned out to be an earthquake. This is the first time I’ve felt such a large vibration in New York.” According to the Wall Street Journal, no damage from the earthquake has been reported so far. The Federal Aviation Administration temporarily suspended some flight departures, saying, “The situation is rapidly changing due to the earthquake in New Jersey.” There were also posts on social media saying that it was rare for something like this to happen in the northeastern United States. Each school also sent a message to parents saying, ‘Students are safe, don’t worry.’

The last time a relatively large earthquake struck the East Coast was in Virginia in 2011. At the time, the magnitude was 5.9, and tremors were felt even in North Carolina and Maine.
