Small Earthquake Felt In Central New Jersey

BERNARDSVILLE, N.J. — A small earthquake rattled parts of central New Jersey. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-2.5 quake hit around 3:41 a.m. Friday, roughly 2 miles north of Bernardsville at a depth of 3 1 / 2 miles. Police say there are no reports of damage. USGS geophysicist Zachary Reeves says 78 people reported feeling it. Reeves says such small earthquakes usually don't cause damage, but people will usually feel a little bit of shaking on higher floors. The USGS says smaller earthquakes are felt in the region every two to three years.
