Monday New Jersey Had A 2.0 EQ. A Nor’easter Looms On Wednesday & Thursday. What Next – Pestilence?

November 6, 2012

When it rains, yes it can sometime pour but really?!?!?! New Jersey did indeed have an earthquake on Monday – It was a relatively small quake, just a 2.0 magnitude which struck at 1:19 a.m. Monday. But N.J. residents reported hearing a loud boom at the time of the earthquake.

The temblor, with a magnitude of 2.0, struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, a community that’s still dealing with downed trees and power outages from Sandy. Ringwood police say there are no reports of damage.

The National Earthquake Information Center reported that some people heard a loud boom and those on upper floors of a home felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate. The last earthquake in New Jersey had a 2.2 magnitude and was recorded in February 2010.

And now the National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting a Nor’easter expected for Wednesday and Thursday.
