3.1 Magnitude Earthquake Hits New Jersey

Did you feel the earthquake last night? If 2020 couldn’t get stranger enough, New Jersey had an earthquake.

According to The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), around 2AM New Jersey had an M 3.1 earthquake roughly 20 miles South East of Edison New Jersey and 2 miles North East of West Freehold New Jersey.

A 3.1 earthquake is considered a minor earthquake. There are tens of thousands of these worldwide annually and, while they may be felt, they cause little or no damage. This is why not too many people felt the earthquake.

There had been reports that the earthquake was felt down in Philadelphia.

The last time we had an earthquake was back on January 16, 2019. If you want to read about it click the link below
