USGS: Magnitude 3.6 earthquake recorded off Massachusetts coast
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.6-magnitude earthquake was recorded Sunday morning off the coast of Massachusetts.
The quake centered off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts, in Buzzards Bay struck around 9:10 a.m., according to the USGS.
It hit at a depth of about 9.3 miles, and was felt across Massachusetts, Rhode Island and into Connecticut and Long Island.
Thousands of people reported the earthquake to the USGS website, including residents from Easthampton, Massachusetts, and Hartford, Connecticut—both of which are around 100 miles away.
This was the strongest earthquake to hit southern New England in decades, but didn't cause any significant damage, authorities say.
No tsunami warning was issued.
