Magnitude-4.1 earthquake strikes Delaware
A magnitude-4.1 earthquake has struck in Delaware about seven miles northeast of Dover Air Force Base, the U.S. Geological Survey is reporting, USA Today reported.
The quake hit just before 5 p.m. The Delaware Emergency Management Agency said there are no reports of damage or serious injuries.
The USGS says it has more than 2,000 responses from people who felt the temblor throughout the mid-Atlantic — as far south as suburban Washington, D.C., and as far north as the Poughkeepsie, N.Y., area.
An earthquake of that strength is considered to be moderate and generally results in little damage, the federal agency reports.
