New Jersey residents endure a small earthquake amidst Hurricane Sandy recovery

New Jersey residents endure a small earthquake amidst Hurricane Sandy recovery

Residents in northern New Jersey were jolted awake Monday morning as a small 2.0 earthquake centered in Ringwood, who is still dealing with Hurricane Sandy damage.

Power outages and downed trees still disable the northeastern residents as the quake shook Mahwah, Wanaque, Oakland, Franklin Lakes, West Milford and Paterson.

Geophysicist Jessica Turner at the National Earthquake Information Center says some people reported hearing a loud boom. Turner says those on upper floors of a home might have felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate.

Ringwood police say there are no reports of damage.

Turner says the last earthquake in New Jersey had a 2.2 magnitude and was recorded in February 2010.
