Philly rocked by 4.4 magnitude quake in Delaware

Philly rocked by 4.4 magnitude quake in Delaware

The natural disaster struck at a shallow depth of 10km (6.2 miles), some 60km (37 miles) from the city of Kerman, which has a population of over 800,000, including suburbs.

According to the USGS, the quake occurred at 4:47 p.m.in the Delaware Bay - centering just 6 miles east-northeast of the state's capital of Dover.

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.

People said they felt shaking for about 10 seconds.

The epicenter was about 50 miles from Philadelphia, 90 miles from Washington and 125 miles from New York City.

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

There are no reports of damage or injuries at this time.

The natural disaster, which was really a tremor, was originally reported as a 4.4 magnitude quake but was quickly downgraded to 4.1.

The Delaware quake is a rare seismological occurrence for the U.S. Northeast, officials said, with the temblor's strength equaling the estimated magnitude of an 1871 quake that was believed to be the largest ever in the state.

The University of Tehran's seismology center gave slightly different figures, announcing an natural disaster of 6.1, followed by aftershocks of 5.1 and 4.

"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".

"I turned around and one of my co-workers was coming down the hall with the big-eyes look", he said.

Carberry said there were no signs of damage at the base, and no change in operations was expected. The impact of that quake included damage to the Washington Monument and National Cathedral in Washington, both of which are still undergoing repairs.
