A 4.6 Magnitude Earthquake Was Felt In Ocean County Tuesday Night
If you thought that you felt like things were moving last night, no you're not crazy, there was an earthquake off the East Coast that was felt here in Ocean County.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a 4.6 magnitude shaker hit about 135 miles off the Maryland coast just after 6:30 last night, and was felt as far away as Massachusetts.
The USGS map for the event includes people reporting that they felt it in Brick, Toms River, Bayville, Manahawkin, and dozens of other locations throughout New Jersey.
