Minor earthquake shakes New Jersey

November 5, 2012RINGWOOD, N.J.Some residents in northern New Jersey awoke to a small earthquake early Monday. The temblor, with a magnitude of 2.0, struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, a community that’s still dealing with downed trees and power outages from Sandy. Geophysicist Jessica Turner at the National Earthquake Information Center says some people reported hearing a loud boom. Turner says those on upper floors of a home might have felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate. The quake was 3 miles below ground and could also be felt in Mahwah, Wanaque, Oakland, Franklin Lakes, West Milford and Paterson. Ringwood police say there are no reports of damage. Turner says the last earthquake in New Jersey had a 2.2 magnitude and was recorded in February 2010. –NY Daily News

    Niagra County NY, Oct. 27th, now northern NJ, Nov 5th, in both cases loud booms were reported. Seems like a pattern here.

    I have been seeing a few reports in various areas. It may be that New York is headed for a second quake. It would not suprise me. If the New Madrid goes off that could trigger events not only on the East Coast but on the West Coast as well. I am always interested in activity at the Colorado New Mexico border it was noted prior to the Virginia quake. We will see I guess.

    Does anyone know the function of the Colorado Plateau — It has been an evident point of curiosity for me after watching the first round of activity that hit Virginia.

    Back in the colonial days, there was a fairly major earthquake that hit the New England area, one hit Charleston, SC in the late 1800’s, and of course the one that recently hit Virginia. So the East Coast is a somewhat active area. And, if (when) New Madrid goes, half of the U.S. will know it.
