A small earthquake hit northern New Jersey early Monday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The magnitude 2.0 temblor struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, N.J., a community that’s still reeling from downed trees and power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy.
Geophysicist Jessica Turner at the National Earthquake Information Center said some people reported hearing a loud boom in their homes, according to The Associated Press. Turner said those on upper floors of a home may have felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate.
The quake was 3 miles below ground and could also be felt in Wanaque, Oakland, Franklin Lakes, West Milford and Peterson.
Ringwood police said there are no reports of damage in the area, the Associated Press reported.
The last recorded earthquake in New Jersey struck in February 2010 and measured 2.2 magnitude, Turner said.
