3.1 Magnitude Earthquake Reported in N J 9 Years After Temblor Shook State 2020

Just felt some kind of very mild vibration. I didn’t hear any cars or planes. I wonder if it was an earthquake – or my imagination.

On a day that started with a 3.1 magnitude earthquake, we begin remote teaching from the building. Sending love to everyone else out there starting today. What a weird first day. Here’s to connecting with a new class!

Our 2 am freak earthquake confused my kitty so much that she kept staring at the ceiling. She thought the ceiling aliens were coming down to abduct her. 😱


New Jersey is not tectonically active, but a quarter billion years ago it was Ground Zero for the cleaving of Pangaea into North America, Africa, and Europe, forming the Atlantic Ocean. Deep-seated extension faults from those days lie under the Atlantic Coastal Plain…

Every now and then one of them slips a bit. (Imagine a short stack of magazines slipping downward.) That’s likely what happened today to cause a rare earthquake beneath the Garden State.
Too far from me, plus I was sound asleep, but jeez 2020, you can stop now. I can only remember about 5 quakes here in my entire life.
“The U.S. Geological Survey reported a preliminary 3.1 magnitude earthquake near Freehold Township.”

3.1 magnitude earthquake reported in N.J. 9 years after temblor shook the state. A brief rumbling woke people up in New Jersey early Wednesday, just after they had returned to work and school following Labor Day weekend. The U.S. Geological Survey reported a preliminary 3.1 magnitude earthquake near Freehold Township. The temblor reportedly happened a little more than a mile southeast of East Freehold just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, the USGS said on its Earthquake Hazards Program website minutes after the event. The National Weather Service’s Mount Holly office tweeted that the small earthquake was felt “in much of central New Jersey.” New Jerseyans in Freehold and beyond posted about the late-night earthquake on social media, checking to see if everyone else felt the same shaking. The rattling woke up some locals who had gone to sleep, while others were startled by the event as they were getting ready to turn in for the night. Some people received earthquake alerts on their phones. The Jersey event was felt on Staten Island, in Queens, and in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. “It sounded like a dump truck being dropped from a few stories up, but about 4-5 blocks away,” a Matawan resident reported on an earthquake-tracking website run by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre in Paris. “It rumbled the floor for about 5 seconds. I could feel from my feet on the floor and through the seat of the chair.” The EMSC, which uses an app called LastQuake to gather witness reports, received accounts from people within a 30-mile radius of the earthquake’s origin. “The whole house shook for several seconds at 2 a.m.,” an East Brunswick resident reported. “Initially thought it may have been a low flying aircraft or helicopter, but none in the area.” “Everyone woke up including the dog,” a Roosevelt resident said. “I thought a car hit the garage.” Just about nine years ago, on the afternoon of Aug. 23, 2011, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in central Virginia shook buildings in New Jersey. It was one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the eastern U.S. No major damage was reported in New Jersey at that time, but some buildings were evacuated and many residents felt the shaking in their cars and offices. The 2011 quake was the biggest felt in the state in recent memory, but there have been other minor events. A 2.8 magnitude earthquake hit near Bernardsville in 2015. In 2014, a 1.7 magnitude earthquake rattled New Jersey southeast of Trenton. And in 2012, just days after Hurricane Sandy, a 2.0 magnitude earthquake happened near Ringwood.
