4.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rumbles DC Area

The quake was felt along the East Coast, including in Philadelphia, New York and even southwest CT.

A magnitude 4.4 quake struck DE on Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published a map showing the quake which was felt in Virginia, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut and NY.

The preliminary magnitude-4.4 natural disaster struck at 4:45 p.m. Thursday.

The natural disaster struck at a shallow depth of 10km (6.2 miles), some 60km (37 miles) from the city of Kerman, which has a population of over 800,000, including suburbs.

People quickly took to social media to share their surprise at the rare Northeast occurrence. "Along with this fracking-enabled rush have come troubling reports of poisoned drinking water, polluted air, mysterious animal deaths, industrial disasters and explosions". People as far away as Washington, DC reported feeling the tremor. He said the quake was widely felt around the Mid-Atlantic region.

According to Delaware Emergency Management Agency, there are no reports of damages and injuries.


Paul Caruso is a geophysicist with the USGS's quake information center in Colorado.

"I felt the whole house nearly like waving", he said. However, in DE, the quake jolted downtown Dover, sending lawmakers and workers in the statehouse outdoors to see what happened. If you did, tell us where you were when you did, and how it felt.

Carberry said there were no signs of damage at the base, and no change in operations was expected.

"I turned around and one of my co-workers was coming down the hall with the big-eyes look", he said.

DE 105.9's Rob Petree hit the streets of Dover for reaction from residents on what they experienced during the quake, which one man said was deafening.

The latest tremors come just over two weeks after a 7.3 quake killed more than 400 people in western Kermanshah province, close to the border with neighboring Iraq. It caused damage to public buildings, pipes and monuments, most notably the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument.
