'Small' Delaware quake felt in tristate area, USGS says

4.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rumbles DC Area

A magnitude 4.1 quake struck 6.2 miles east northeast of Dover, Delaware on Thursday and was felt throughout the mid-Atlantic, the U.S. Geological Survey says.

A strong quake of magnitude 6.0 struck southeastern Iran near the city of Kerman on Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was hard to immediately predict if there would be aftershocks, she said.

Social media was abuzz even before the official word from scientists.

The station also writes that Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS, says there is potential for aftershocks.

Spreadex financial analyst Connor Campbell suggested the tests proved the position of Britain's financial sector had improved considerably over the last decade.

According to Delaware Emergency Management Agency, there are no reports of damages and injuries. The USGS initially reported the natural disaster as a 4.4, then a 5.1, before dropping back to a 4,4, and now at 4.1 magnitude. "My friend called me and was like 'I don't want to go to work, I don't wanna do anything".

Husam Albarmawi, a 30-year-old graduate student at the University of Maryland, rushed out of an apartment tower with his wife when they felt two separate jolts roughly 20 seconds apart in their 23rd-story apartment. "Usually the largest aftershocks we see in a series is about 1 magnitude smaller than the main natural disaster".

Hundreds of people said they felt it. "I stepped outside and spoke to some co-workers who weren't really sure what was going on either", Jenne explained.

WUSA9 Meteorologist Howard Bernstein compared the DE quake to one DC felt in August 2011.
