Long Island earthquake reportedly felt by some in HV
Tremors from an ocean-based earthquake off of the coast of Southhampton, Long Island were reportedly felt by some in the Hudson Valley Tuesday, but scientists are calling the quake minor.
A 3.9 magnitude quake hit Tuesday morning around 10:45, and police say that there have been no reports of injuries or any damage thus far.
John Armbruster, a Hudson Valley-based seismologist, says that while some may have felt a few tremors, that will be the extent of the local effects.
The last earthquake that was reportedly felt by some in the Hudson Valley was back in June, when a 5.0 magnitude quake shook parts of Canada and upstate New York.
