Delaware (People's Daily) - A magnitude 4.1 earthquake struck Delaware Bay, five miles from the state capital, east of Dover, Delaware, November 30, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
"We definitely felt it here," said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of Delaware State Police.
D.C. newspaper Washington Post reported tremors were felt in the nation’s capital. Eastern and northern locales stretching to Allentown, Pennsylvania and southern Connecticut also reported tremors.
A USGS geophysicist said the earthquake was “exceptionally rare” for the area. The last time Delaware was affected by a quake was 2011.
"We have not received any reports of damage at this time,” said Fournier.
