Earthquake Strikes Delaware, No Damage Reported In Maryland

A strong quake of magnitude 6.0 has struck southeastern Iran near the city of Kerman, the US Geological Survey says.

A magnitude 4.1 quake hit DE on Thursday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The U.S. Geological Service reported intensity levels - a different measurement than magnitude - ranging from 3 (weak) to 5 (moderate) throughout Delaware.

The extremely rare tremor, which happened at around 4:47 p.m., was felt by some New Jerseyans while barely noticed by others.

There have been no reports of damage or casualties, and it appears most of the shaking was relatively minor. Bellini said the tremor was a "shallow quake", meaning it was relatively close, as far as earthquakes go, to the surface. It was later revised to a 4.1 magnitude quake, which is considered light and generally does not bring severe damage.

A 4.4 magnitude natural disaster hit DE, and aftershocks could be felt as far as NY.

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

NEIC geophysicist John Bellini, located at the office in Golden Colo., said the quake originated six miles east/northeast of Dover, Del.

"I felt the whole house nearly like waving", he said.

Hundreds of people said they felt it. "Usually the largest aftershocks we see in a series is about 1 magnitude smaller than the main quake". "I stepped outside and spoke to some co-workers who weren't really sure what was going on either", Jenne explained.
