Earthquake In Delaware, Tremors Experienced in Region

The quake was about 6 miles east-northeast of Dover and was registered at a depth of 4 miles.

An 4.4-magnitude quake centered near Dover, Delaware but could be felt for hundreds of miles along the East Coast.

A rare quake jolted the Mid-Atlantic region of the East Coast on Thursday evening, prompting some to flee offices and homes, but causing no serious damage or injuries.

Martin Pagliughi, coordinator of the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management, said he felt the tremors. "I see it was felt in New York City", she said, explaining that individuals who felt the quake can file reports on the agency's website.

It was followed by two less powerful 5.0 and 5.1 aftershocks in the same area, the survey said.

There's no word on whether there was any injuries or damage. The magnitude falls under the category of "light" on the Richter scale, with noticeable shaking but zero to minimal damage.

"I felt the whole house nearly like waving", he said. Workers at the statehouse in Dover streamed into the streets after the quake to see what happened.

"What we felt was kinda just a rumble, and I didn't quite know what to make of it and it was loud as well".

The natural disaster hit at 4:47 p.m. Carberry, who is from the West Coast, said she told co-workers, "I'm pretty sure this is an natural disaster". It caused damage to public buildings, pipes and monuments, most notably the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument.
