*Uh oh, it happened again. Another earthquake has shaked a part of the USA that norm ally doesn’t experience such things.
The last significant earthquake to hit the region was in 2011, which was centered in Virginia and rattled parts of New Jersey and New York, causing buildings to sway in cities and towns across the region.
The magnitude 4.1 quake struck Thursday (11-30-17) afternoon near Dover, Delaware, and was felt from New York to Baltimore.
“We definitely felt it here,” said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of Delaware State Police. “We have not received any reports of damage at this time. (My) house shook and you could hear thing rattle. It sounded like a train and lasted about a second.”
